In a world of changing climate and evolving priorities, now, more than ever, reliable data and evidence-based knowledge is needed to empower transformation in Africa.

The World Bank Group has published over 4,000 research titles on Africa’s most pressing regional and national development issues. Our compelling knowledge products reflect Africa’s needs and ambitions—and our own experiences on the ground—to foster innovation and impact in Africa’s development today and into the future.

The Africa Knowledge Fest is produced by the Africa Region of the World Bank, through a partnership between the Office of Chief Economist in the Africa Region and the Africa Communications and Partnerships team.
