Africa Country Benchmark Report order banner

In On Africa (IOA) is proud to announce the launch of the second edition of the Africa Country Benchmark Report (ACBR) – the definitive resource for understanding Africa, now available for purchase.

ACBR is the most comprehensive assessment of all 54 African countries, drawing from more than 19,000 data points, 34 internationally recognized indexes and various key indicators. The report scores, ranks and insightfully assesses each African country holistically, as well as across business, economic, political and social factors, and is presented in an 800-page infographic-driven report.

This groundbreaking publication is an invaluable tool for any business, government, organisation or institution that will benefit from country-specific and comparative assessments of the African continent, revealing key opportunities, risks, gaps, needs and successes.

The 2017 edition of ACBR has involved the re-engineering and expansion of our assessment model, drawing on a much wider array of data sources that have been thoroughly analysed by a team of IOA analysts.
