Financing Human Development and the Ending of Extreme Poverty in Africa

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 19, 2019 | Overseas Development Institute, Marcus Manuel, Stephanie Manea

Economic growth is expected to halve poverty rates in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) by 2030. But 340 million people will be left in extreme poverty. In this article, Marcus Manuel and Stephanie Manea of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) explore how the EU could play a more effective role in ending extreme poverty in SSA. They identify those SSA countries that are least able to afford the needed investment in human development, specifically in education, health and social protection. They discuss targeting aid to build human development, and explore the implications for EU member states and institutions, and for the forthcoming negotiations on the Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027.
