Africa Development Dynamics

I saw a great image in the Africa Practice Newsletter- referring to:

OECD’s 2019 Africa’s Development Dynamics report  that I found very interesting snapshot of development in African countries now and in the future.

My thought is that we as professionals operating in the land and built environments, truly need to increase our positive impact and influence for African societal good.  The report highlights Africa’s GDP has grown 4.6% annually since 2000, the second fastest in the world….. Although this is an averaging across the continent, (the report does provide links region by region and country by country) we have such a good opportunity now, to collaborate with each other and spearhead positive change.
