M. Blimpo, M. Minges, W. Kouamé, T. Azomahou, E. Lartey and al. | World Bank

The purpose of this book is to explore ways to catalyze a new generation of investment opportunities in Africa that leverage the ability of many countries to leapfrog into the future. The book was born from the view that gradualism and business-as-usual will not provide the necessary solutions to the massive challenges facing the continent. Under the overarching theme of Leapfrogging, the book discusses the following six topics: (a) agriculture, (b) education, (c) energy, (d) finance, (e) governance, and (f) information and communications technologies.
