Knowledge Note

This SmartLesson showcases the lessons learned from the Africa Round Table, a collaborative forum that over the past four years has brought together countries from East, West, and Southern Africa. The forum has led to more than five distinct insolvency reforms that have helped strengthen countries’ credit environments. By leveraging their joint capacities, IFC and the World Bank have helped Sub-Saharan African countries address the challenges of the financial crisis, strengthen ties across professions, and in the process create a guiding example for evoking lasting change in a country.
