Data for African Nations to Tell their Own Development Narratives
Africa must be in a position to tell its own story, but it won't be able to do so if it doesn't have the data to tell this story. The Economic Commission for Africa's country profiles are a key data and forecasting tool designed to help African countries access the data they need to make evidence-based decisions. Watch the ECA's Deputy Executive Secretary, Giovanie Biha, explain "why numbers matter" - why the ECA's country profiles offer the opportunity for African countries "to tell their own narratives in terms of their experiences and prospects for socioeconomic development."
