Welcome to your Africa Project!

Hello! This libguide has been crafted to feature information and resources that will help you with your research projects over topics in Africa. 

The video below is from CNBC Africa. The African Development Bank tells us that foreign investment is outpacing foreign aid. What use to be a continent dependent on hand-outs from donor countries is now a place that those same countries are looking to, to invest? But despite the positive outlook Africa is still a poor continent; it is unlikely the Millennium Development Goal to reduce poverty by half by 2015 will be met. From where we sit today the resource rich continent still has a way to go to achieve its potential, but it's this potential that's attracting foreign currency to these shores.
