Governance and Pro-Poor Growth in Africa

"This Policy Brief, presents a synopsis of main conclusions and policy recommendations emanating from the deliberations during the seminar. Good governance could improve public investment and reduce poverty in Africa. Public investment is a key catalyst for a weak private sector to invest more: for increasing employment among the poor and moving labour away from subsistence agriculture; for transforming agricultural productivity; for providing greater access to education, skills and health care by the poor; and for improving rural transport, communications and electricity infrastructure."
