Africa Program

The Council on Foreign Relations' Africa program examines Africa's rapid socio-economic development and explores its still fearsome challenges. In doing so, the program seeks to provide policymakers, the business community, and the general public with information and policy recommendations for a continent that is becoming one of "lions on the move."
1 in 4 people on the planet will be African by 2050
