Abstract : The continent has experienced a very slow economic transformation characterised by the persistent weight of the agricultural sector and by urbanisation without industrialisation. The pathways of structural change nevertheless reveal considerable national differences depending on whether or not the countries have revenues from extractive industries, with some countries commencing effective economic diversification. The "economic consolidation" of local dynamics is a possible response to the need for a new development model. (Résumé d'auteur)
