A comprehensive approach to LTF in Africa

Addressing the LTF finance gap requires addressing a data gap

The radar graph provides an overview of how specific countries rank against each other or against countries in relevant sub-regions or with the African continent as a whole, allowing the reader to quickly identify “weaknesses” and “strengths”. For each of four categories of data the “radar graph” includes three selected variables that summarize the available data.
