The African Economic Outlook (AEO) 2013 thematic chapter will analyse the patterns and underlying drivers of structural change in Africa in greater detail and place a special emphasis on the role of natural resources and economic diversification in this process.

The AEO is a joint annual report from the Africa Development Bank (AfDB), the OECD Development Centre, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).  It presents a comprehensive analysis of the economic, social and political developments in the region including in-depth country notes on 53 of the continent’s 54 economies, a macroeconomic overview, and a special study on the promotion of youth employment.
