Sub-Saharan Africa – a vast continental region divided into 50 countries ranging from the Horn of Africa and the nations of the Sahel in the north to the Cape of Good Hope in the south – is home to 10% of the world’s population with many cultures and languages. To the east it faces the Indian Ocean and Asia, sure to be an axis of rising economic and political power in the 21st century; to the west lie the trade routes of Europe and the Americas.
General economic conditions in the region remain robust and the outlook broadly positive, with the International Monetary Fund projecting collective growth at 5.25% and several of its nations listed among the fastest growing economies on earth. Entering an era of challenge and growth, opportunities abound in infrastructure development; oil, gas, power and energy; telecommunication and media; minerals and mining; and enormous agricultural potential – all requiring substantial outside technical assistance and investment.
Challenges arise from the legacy of the colonial era which produced arbitrary national boundaries, lingering poverty, ethnic rivalries, religious strife, emerging democracies, and in some areas military action and the rise of extremism and terrorism. Safety and security conditions are fluid and vary widely.
