CPIA Africa

Assessing Africa's Policies and Institutions


CPIA Africa is an annual report that describes the progress Sub-Saharan African countries are making on strengthening the quality of their policies and institutions. Reflecting an encouraging trend, nearly 30 percent more countries strengthened their policy and institutional quality in 2017 compared with 2016, and 40 percent fewer countries had a weakening trend. The downside movement in aggregate scores was concentrated in fragile countries, attesting to the difficult enabling environment in fragile countries and the high risks of conflict, commodity price shocks, or climate threat that they face which can translate into rapid deterioration in policy performance.
