Region Profile: Climate, Geography, Socio-Economic Context

Africa faces the toughest challenges of any continent. While most of the developing world has managed to reduce poverty, the rate in sub-Saharan Africa has not changed much since the 1980s. With 40% of the population living below the extreme poverty line of US$1 per day and 73% of the population below US$2 a day, according to World Bank figures, this continues to be the world's poorest region.


A heavy burden of disease (including the HIV and AIDS epidemic), poor capacity in almost every aspect and continuing social unrest are only some of the issues adding to an already heavy socio-economic toll and putting sub- Saharan Africa off track to meet the Millennium Development Goals.
