"We seem to be fixated on this romanticized idea that every poor person in Africa is an entrepreneur,” he says. "Yet, my work has taught me that most people want jobs.” Delle, a TED Fellow, makes the case for supporting large companies and factories — and clearing away the obstacles to pan-African trade.

    In February, a team of journalists unveiled a tax evasion system used by the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC. From 2006 to 2007, roughly 100,000 clients secretly channeled over $100 billion through HSBC accounts. Of that, over $13 billion came from roughly 7,500 clients in Africa. Billions of dollars were channeled from Egypt, South Africa, and Morocco. But significant amounts also came from poorer countries such as Eritrea, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Liberia. Recent leaks about tax evasion are just the tip of the iceberg on Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs). The UN estimates the cost of IFFS in Africa at $50 billion each year, more than the total amount of Official Development Assistance (ODA) received by African countries. This represents as much as 25% of Gross Domestic Product (GD...

In February, a team of journalists unveiled a tax evasion system used by the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC. From 2006 to 2007, roughly 100,000 clients secretly channeled over $100 billion through HSBC accounts. Of that, over $13 billion came from roughly 7,500 clients in Africa. Billions of dollars were channeled from Egypt, South Africa, and Morocco. But significant amounts also came from poorer countries such as Eritrea, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Liberia. Recent leaks about tax evasion are just the tip of the iceberg on Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs). The UN estimates the cost of IFFS in Africa at $50 billion each year, more than the total amount of Official Development Assistance (ODA) received by African countries. This represents as much as 25% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in some countries. If the illicit flows were curtailed, it would allow countries to meet their development goals significantly faster. The OECD and the G20 are currently advancing discussions on the automatic exchange of tax information, considered the most efficient way to fight tax evasion. However, developing countries will need significant assistance before being able to implement the exchange.

The Road to Hell: The Ravaging Effects of Foreign Aid and International Charity, by Michael Maren, is a book about good intentions gone awry, in the realm of charitable assistance to Africa. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743227867/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0743227867&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=c8a3cb1e0bdb0a8bc6c3bb0c69af08ce The author argues that the international aid industry is a big business more concerned with winning its next big government contract than helping needy people. The focus of the book is Somalia. Among the organizations criticized are World Vision, Save the Children, Christian Children's Fund, UNICEF, CARE, Catholic Relief Services, and USAID. The book argues that relief aid helped bolster the regime of Siad Barre. The book has been cited by some academics as evidence that violent competition for control over large-scale food aid contributed to the breakdown of government in Somalia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Road_to_Hell_(book) The Somali Civil War is an ongoing civil war taking place in Somalia. It began in 1991, when a coalition of clan-based armed opposition groups ousted the nation's long-standing military government. Various factions began competing for influence in the power vacuum that followed, which precipitated an aborted UN peacekeeping attempt in the mid-1990s. A period of decentralization ensued, characterized by a return to customary and religious law in many areas as well as the establishment of autonomous regional governments in the northern part of the country. The early 2000s saw the creation of fledgling interim federal administrations, culminating in the establishment of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) in 2004. In 2006, the TFG, assisted by Ethiopian troops, assumed control of most of the nation's southern conflict zones from the newly formed Islamic Courts Union (ICU). The ICU subsequently splintered into more radical groups, notably Al-Shabaab, which have since been fighting the Somali government and its AMISOM allies for control of the region. In 2011, a coordinated military operation between the Somali military and multinational forces began, which is believed to represent one of the final stages in the war's Islamist insurgency. UN Security Council Resolution 733 and UN Security Council Resolution 746 led to the creation of UNOSOM I, the first mission to provide humanitarian relief and help restore order in Somalia after the dissolution of its central government. United Nations Security Council Resolution 794 was unanimously passed on December 3, 1992, which approved a coalition of United Nations peacekeepers led by the United States. Forming the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the alliance was tasked with assuring security until humanitarian efforts aimed at stabilizing the situation were transferred to the UN. Landing in 1993, the UN peacekeeping coalition started the two-year United Nations Operation in Somalia II (UNOSOM II) primarily in the south.[15] UNITAF's original mandate was to use "all necessary means" to guarantee the delivery of humanitarian aid in accordance to Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter,[16] and is regarded as a success. Some of the militias that were then competing for power interpreted the UN troops' presence as a threat to their hegemony. Consequently, several gun battles took place in Mogadishu between local gunmen and peacekeepers. Among these was the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, an unsuccessful attempt by US troops to apprehend faction leader Aidid. UN soldiers eventually withdrew altogether from the country on March 3, 1995, having incurred more significant casualties. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somali_Civil_War

www.hackingafrica.com, anwuli okeke Twitter - @hackingafrica YouTube - Hacking Africa Africans are tired of being on the receiving end of foreign aid and would like to become self reliant. So, the African Union has set a self-financing target of $1.2 billion annually in order to reduce heavy dependence on external partners to finance development projects.

At the Jepson Leadership Forum economist Dambisa Moyo, named one of Time magazine's most influential people in the world for 2009, discusses her book Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa. In it she unflinchingly confronts what she sees as one of the greatest myths of our time and argues that foreign aid to Africa be phased out and replaced with innovative ways to finance development and encourage fair trade.

While small-scale aid and charities are doing important work in Africa, they are not able to provide the jobs that are necessary for long-term growth. Question: Which aid programs are doing the best work?Moyo:    I mean, I sit on a number of charities, on the board of a number of charities that are doing fantastic work in Africa.  And I'll come into details in a moment, but I think what's really important to stress here again is what these charities can and cannot do?  So, the charities that I sit on are able to go into these countries and actually provide bandage solutions intermediate solutions. They cannot provide jobs which is where it's really important for us to see much more involvement in the private sector and that's why I'm talking about this other form of aid.  And why it's hampered that opportunity.  Some of the charities that I think of doing some fantastic work are places like Room to Read, which has got a very targeted programs towards helping young people get to access to books.  Other charities, for example, I sit on the board of a charity called "Lundin for Africa" which is a very, very clearly defined mandate to try and support through lending projects in microfinance across the continent.  And the third charity that I worked for or I always...I'm a patron...for whom I'm a patron is called "Ark" Absolutely Return for Kids again, very targeted involvement providing anti-retrovirals to Africans...across the Africa, but again, very narrow and also no illusion that they are going to be providing a long-term sustainable growth to these countries.  So, there're some examples of some interesting programs. Question: What do you think of the Millennium Development Goals?Moyo:    Well, to the extent that we know, we're not going to achieve those goals, which is obvious 2015 is around the corner...you know, the architects of the Millennium Development Goals are themselves going around saying that you know, Africa is likely not to meet any of those goals.  So, I think those type of very sort of large, big scale large focus lofty goals tend to meet to be red herrings for the fundamental issues.  What I'm looking to see is much more active programs to implement the things that we know worked, the things that have made China, China and India, and South Africa and Botswana successful at creating jobs and reducing poverty.  That's what we need to focus our efforts on.  I think it's also important that we focus on spinning a more positive story about Africa.  Too many of the NGOs and celebrities and charities around are very focused on perpetuating a negative stereo type about the concept which cannot be helpful to raise the very young Africans that are coming up across the continent.  That's a no value to be negative and yet that's what we see across the continent.  So, I think, we just need to do more of what we know works and less of what we know does not work.  In fact there is no country on Earth today that has achieved economic development and reduced poverty by relaying on aid.  Not a single one, and yet we're pushing a product that we know doesn't work at the time when we know what does work and that's what the issue is here. Question: Is microfinance a better alternative?Moyo:    Absolutely, microfinance is one of the tools for development that I talked about in the book.  It's an amazing, amazing way of providing support to Africans and people all around the world to finance themselves and therefore be able to stand on their own two feet.  They can provide themselves an income, provide education and healthcare to their children.  There are numerous examples of this.  From Muhammad Yunus want to know about price from Grameen Bank and I just was on a discussion program with him not too long ago.  Even in this market, he's, you know, with all the challenges of the capital markets right now.  He's managed to raise $1 billion from the very small aid student, very small communities within Bangladesh.  It's a billion dollars in rural Bangladesh and you know, very, very little default rates and you know, tremendous success.  These are the type of programs that you'd becoming out of the multilateral institutions and they are not...we seen more of the same giving more money to African government.  Giving money to governments around the world whereas it seems to me we know what works and give us another example I talked about in the book.  It's an internet interface for...minimum of $25, you can lend to an entrepreneur anywhere around the world.  Again, helping to finance a job and again, lending is the operative word, gives opportunity for Africans on the ground, so actually meaningful change their lives.

African countries are estimated to lose more than 50 billion US dollars a year because of illicit and illegal outflow of money; more than the total amount of aid received each year. This video shows the efforts of pan-African Good Financial Governance networks representing African Ministries of Finance, Tax Authorities, Supreme Audit Institutions, as well as Public Account Committees. Jointly they organised a three day international conference titled “Tackling Illicit Financial Flows: An African approach to a global phenomenon” in Yaoundé, Cameroon, from May 24 - 26, 2017.

http://www.ted.com Negative images of Africa dominate the news: famine and disease, conflict and corruption. But Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the former Finance Minister of Nigeria and now a director of the World Bank, says there's a less-told story unfolding in many African nations: one of reform, economic growth and business opportunity. Cracking down on corruption -- and the perception of corruption -- will be the key to its success. She tells how high-ranking Nigerian officials taking money illicitly have been jailed, and how citizens and prospective business partners are getting at least a partial picture now of where money flows.

Following more than a decade of healthy growth based on good economic policy and improved governance, African economies are now growing much more slowly. Potential investment returns remain high, however, and investment, especially in infrastructure, is critical to restoring growth and ensuring its sustainability in the region with the poorest and most fragile states in the world. How can the African Development Bank (AfDB) help unlock more funds for investment on the continent — in infrastructure, where the bank has a good record, and in education, where its leadership could help trigger critical reforms? And what is the role of the AfDB relative to the other multilateral development banks (MDBs)? At this special event ahead of the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings, AfDB president Dr Akinwumi Adesina will give keynote remarks and then join an eminent panel to consider the AfDB's future opportunities and challenges. How might it best fit into a more cohesive MDB 'system', as outlined in CGD's major 2016 report Multilateral Development Banking for this Century's Development Challenges. Should the AfDB have more resources? And what could and should become the AfDB's areas of focus and comparative advantage?
