We are pleased to invite you to a presentation of Do African Children Have an Equal Chance? A Human Opportunity Report for Sub-Saharan Africa, by Ana Revenga, Senior Director of the World Bank's Poverty and Equity Global Practice, and report authors Andrew Dabalen and Ambar Narayan.

Has Sub-Saharan Africa’s high economic growth translated into improvements in children’s access to education, health and infrastructure? This report discusses how these opportunities have evolved in the 2000s in 20 Africa countries, and finds that encouraging progress has been made and gaps between countries have narrowed.

Please join us for the presentation, which will be followed by a discussion with the authors and other panelists. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.

Coffee will be served at 8:30am (Paris - GMT+2).
