Beyond GDP in Africa


There is a clear need to go beyond GDP in Africa, with a view to identifying new indicators that take into account the interplay between human, social and ecological well-being. This project builds on international networks of GDP reformers to build capacity in Africa for a post-GDP transition. It includes workshops, high-level talks and public events with leading practitioners and academics. The applications of the results are mainly targeted at the Southern African region.
