West Africa stands out as one of the world’s fastest-growing regions, both demographically and economically. With a population exceeding 425 million, the region is projected to contribute approximately 15% to global population growth in the next two decades. West Africa experienced a GDP growth of 4.3% in 2021, and this positive trend was anticipated to stabilise above 4% in 2022 and 2023.
