This report presents three scenarios on the potential impact of COVID-19 in Africa and
compares that to a pre-COVID-19 baseline, using the International Futures forecasting
platform, IFs (see Box 1). The likely impacts are then examined on economic growth,
per capita income, poverty and the attainment of selected SDG targets with a forecast
horizon to 2030.1
The report concludes with four main policy recommendations aimed at reducing
vulnerability and strengthening Africa’s resilience. These recommendations aim to make
a robust contribution to the debate about policy options for Africa facing the
international community, African governments and in-country stakeholders.
