- Joint Foreword
Since ARII was first published in 2016, regional integration in Africa has made tremendous strides. The leaders of the African Development Bank Group, the African Union Commission, and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa reflect on what’s next.
- Why Measure Regional Integration in Africa?
Why are some countries and regional economic communities more regionally integrated than others, and what does it change on the ground? Find out why it makes a difference to benchmark and monitor regional integration.
- Principal Recommendations
Africa scores low on regional integration, but change is on the horizon. What should be done now?
- Index Makeup
ARII uses sixteen indicators, grouped into five dimensions, to measure how well each country and region in Africa is integrated with its neighbours. ARII also measures the state of regional integration for the continent as a whole.
The best available sources of data, an objective weighting system, and other methodological choices make ARII a robust tool for measuring regional integration.
ARII 2019 is a joint publication of the African Union Commission, the African Development Bank, and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).
