Nigeria in 2050: global player or poverty capital?


Nigeria could be one of the major players in the global economy, but its potential remains unfulfilled. On its current development path, the country looks set to have the highest number of extremely poor people in the world by 2050.

This seminar seeks input on a new ISS report covering the long-term prospects of Africa’s largest economy and most populous country. The two-part event will outline Nigeria’s current development trajectory and then present the structural interventions that could transform the country’s future. Presentations will be followed by questions and discussion with participants. Those who register will receive the draft report prior to the event.
