in Africa-wide per capita income would be higher than that of Russia, Malaysia or Turkey today. Under such a scenario, Africa’s average per capita income would rise from 27 percent of the world average today to 52 percent.

Such sustained growth would set in motion many changes which would. With a population of million (UN, ), West Africa is home to 5 percent of the world’s population. This is a five-fold increase in population sincewhen 73 million people lived in the region, which makes West Africa the fastest growing of any of the world’s regions.

The conclusion that rapid population growth has slowed development is by no means straightfor-ward or clearcut (see Box ). Under certain condi-tions moderate population growth can be benefi-cial.

As Chapter 4 showed, in Europe, Japan, and North America economic growth has been accom-panied by moderate population growth, which.
