A gateway to data and information on Africa's social, economic, territorial and environmental development, developed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

This platform features Joint Research Centre (JRC) data, tools, partnerships and stories developed in-house or with African and international partners. It provides a single entry-point to the wealth of JRC knowledge on Africa and aims to support the European Union (EU) objective of deepening the partnership with Africa, as highlighted in the Communication “Towards a comprehensive Strategy with Africa”. This platform has been designed primarily to answer the knowledge needs of EU policymakers working in the different domains of EU cooperation with Africa but can be of interest to external users.



This is a prototype under development – we encourage your feedback and suggestions for future evolution of the platform.
