Visit www.worldbank.org The World Bank Western and Central Africa Region Western and Central Africa is a vast region with diverse cultures, beliefs, languages, and lifestyles. It encompasses 22 countries that are home to about half a billion people. With 12% of its population being under the age of 15, Western and Central Africa has one of the youngest population in the world. The sub-region is rich in resources and brimming of opportunities. It has experienced high economic growth from the mid-2000's, powered by high commodity prices, before slowing down over the recent period. The combined GDP at market price of the 22 countries is estimated close to $711 billion in 2019. Yet these vast opportunities are tempered by persistent gaps in education, health, and skills. Moreover, weak governance, conflicts, food insecurity, population growth, and climate change threaten to curtail or even reverse the progress that has been made over the past decades. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought back to the forefront the risks posed by weaknesses in public sector service delivery systems. The World Bank is a dedicated partner for Western and Central African countries, helping them deliver strong development outcomes for their people. As of June, 2020, the World Bank approved $8.1 billion in lending to the Africa Western and Central region for 72 operations in fiscal year 2020 and has an active portfolio (IBRD/IDA) of 350 projects totaling $38.1 billion. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than $260 million has been dedicated to COVID-19 emergency operations, with more operations under preparation totaling $4.8 billion for the remainder of FY20 and in FY21.
