Africa is a diverse continent with many faces. In recent years, the continent has attracted interest as a booming marketplace experiencing impressive economic growth. At the same time, conflict intensity has been on the rise again since 2013 and development challenges persist. Poverty and hunger remain widespread, many states are characterised as fragile, and governance progress is hampered by corruption. Pressures on natural resource use and the effects of a changing climate add further challenges for states where agriculture occupies a central role in national economies.
Africa-related research at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) includes work on the following topics:
