Ending Poverty in Africa through IDA - Country Results

December 17, 2013

With help from IDA, the World Bank's fund for the poorest, Sub-Saharan Africa is making progress on reducing poverty. Growth has been widespread, and between 2005 and 2008, the region saw the number of people living on less than $1.25 a day fall by 9 million. Between 2003 and 2013, IDA provided $66 billion in financing for 951 projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, working in an average of 36 countries a year.
