December 01, 2000 -- Policies for Faster Growth and Poverty Reduction in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Role of the IMF -- An IMF Issues Brief
After two decades of economic stagnation and little progress in poverty reduction, the seeds of an economic renaissance in sub-Saharan Africa, with faster growth and less poverty, have been sown in recent years. This Issues Brief, after reviewing recent economic developments, outlines the key policy issues that countries in the region will need to address and the contribution that the international community, including the IMF, will need to make to build on recent gains and establish a virtuous cycle of sustained high-quality growth.
