When the taps run dry: Egypt’s susceptibility to capital outflows
Portfolio inflows have become central in funding Egypt’s external position – a sudden reversal spells trouble for the North African nation. In this webinar we show how Egypt’s foreign reserve buffer would be impacted by a sudden deterioration in emerging market sentiment, what this would mean for the Egyptian pound, and how this might impede some of the economic reform progress made so far.

In this webinar we give our view on how global warming will affect African economic development and which areas of climate change adaptation and mitigation we consider to be most important in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana.Find Out More
