The report is a landmark publication of The African Ecological Futures Project, an initiative of the WWF Regional Office for Africa and funded by AfDB. The project seeks to provide sustainable growth that understands and responds to the erosion of Africa’s ecological base. 
The report examines how a confluence of factors have positively sustained a steady economic growth in Africa over the past ten to fifteen years, but may either solidify the economic gains and enhance sustainability or compromise the potential for future growth depending on the economic decisions that African countries make today. It therefore seeks to engage key decision makers across Africa in a process that will identify and interrogate Africa’s ecological and environmental future by investigating environmental pressures and identifying emerging scenarios and enhance dialogue about shaping a balanced future for the continent.
