Supporting the continent's transformation agenda
Economic transformation is at the core of Africa’s development agenda. The OECD works closely with African governments, regional organisations and private actors to help them design and implement innovative policies adapted to each context, and improve the economic and social well-being of African people.
We do this by supporting the production of knowledge and data by our partners on the continent, facilitating an international exchange of experiences and views, and inviting the active participation of African policy makers in the setting of global standards.
