The World Bank Group serves 48 client countries in the Africa Region (AFR). Clients range from low income countries among them many fragile and conflict states to a small but growing number of middle income countries (MICs) but with weak human development indicators. Average annual per capita income varies widely and inequalities persist in most AFR countries, with most of the Region’s people living in poverty. The Bank’s strategy in AFR is focused on two pillars – competitiveness and employment, and vulnerability and resilience – and a foundation – governance and public-sector capacity.

By the end of July 2016, the portfolio is estimated to be around US$400m, with six distinct operations covering four sub-sectors (basic, secondary, skills, and higher education).  All the operations have elements of support on improving access, quality, equity and relevance of education.  Financed by the Global Partnership for Education Fund, the US$100m operation in primary education is focused on improving teacher and school effectiveness.  There is also a US$100m IDA-financed skills development operation focused on enhancing the capacity of institutions to deliver high quality, demand-driven training programs in target sectors.
