Rwanda tops Africa in CPIA Ratings

The Country Policy & Institutional Assessment (CPIA) is a flagship report of the World Bank Africa Region Chief Economist's office. This annual report describes the progress Sub-Saharan African countries are making on strengthening the quality of their policies and institutions. CPIA ratings are used in determining the allocation of zero-interest financing and grants for IDA countries, which makes the report particularly important from a country’s perspective. In this short video, Albert Zeufack, Chief Economist of the Africa Region, explains what the CPIA is and what this year’s numbers mean for Africa.
