Africa Tax and Inequality Report February 2014

By Christian Aid – 

After a decade of high growth, a new narrative of optimism has taken hold about Africa and its economic prospects. Alongside buoyant growth rates, there has been some poverty reduction and some positive progress in sectors such as health and education. However, despite this, there is a broad consensus that progress in human development has been limited given the volume of wealth created. There is growing concern that the high levels of income inequality in sub-Saharan Africa are holding back progress.

Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute also contributed in this Report.

NB:  The report will be officially launched in South Africa on 26 June 2014
