Growth and Poverty Reduction

Japan and its East Asian neighbors are considered economic development success stories, having realized growth and reduced poverty. Africa, by contrast, stirs concern about the sustainability of its economic growth. JICA-RI studies the reasons for successful growth and poverty reduction in Japan and East Asia and also the reasons for Africa's vulnerability. We also explore success factors that can be shared to help design development strategies for Africa from East Asian perspectives.
