Private Sector Success Stories from UNDP Country Offices in Africa

Building upon UNDP-AFIM’s flagship report, Realizing Africa’s Wealth: Building Inclusive Businesses for Shared Prosperity, which illustrates the catalytic role of the private sector and inclusive business practices in reducing poverty, AFIM’s Private Sector Success Stories demonstrates these principles in action at country level with the support of UNDP Country Offices.

 

The publication aims to highlight pertinent examples of successful UNDP initiatives to promote private sector-led growth approaches, in order to demonstrate their beneficial effects and contribution to sustainable economic growth across sub-Saharan Africa. It takes its examples from Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Rwanda and Tanzania, in areas as agriculture, innovative finance, social media and public-private collaboration, illustrating the potential of the private sector to stimulate economic growth and reduce poverty across a myriad of sectors.
