Africa Program

The Carnegie Africa Program, based in Washington DC, provides analysis and insights on the economic, political, technological, and transnational issues shaping Africa’s future.

In a post-pandemic world, challenges and opportunities await the African continent. Investment flows will shift as African countries rethink foreign aid, strengthen regional trade, and support home-grown enterprises. At the same time, African leaders need to grapple with global efforts to combat climate change and an ever-changing digital technology landscape.

The Carnegie Africa Program engages policymakers and scholars to shape global discourse and policy in the region and to amplify the voices of African experts on the ground.

Chart of the Month

Every month the Carnegie Africa Program produces an infographic to highlight a key trend impacting African countries. We often invite scholars and policy experts to contribute to the discussion by writing a short piece to complement the Chart of the Month.
