Abstract:The International Conference on 'Rethinking African Economic Policy in Light of the Global Economic and Financial Crisis' (Nairobi, Kenya, 6-8 December 2009), organized by the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC), African Development Bank and UNDP, aimed to address the fundamental questions of the design of robust, flexible and innovative actions to respond to the threat which the global economic and financial crisis of 2008 poses for Africa's growth and development. The conference drew over 200 participants from different countries in Africa (including governors and deputy governors of central banks and ministers), and different parts of the world. What is published here are the keynote address, 'Shocks, vulnerability and therapy', by Professor Justin Yifu Lin, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank, and the plenary papers covering the themes of the conference: Economic policies in G-20 and African countries during the global financial crisis: who's the apprentice, who's the master? (Dirk Willem te Velde) - The global financial crisis and African economies: impact and transmission channels (Ernest Aryeetey and Charles Ackah) - Africa and the global economic crisis: impacts, policy responses and political economy (Shantayanan Devarajan and Louis A. Kasekende) - Impacts of the economic crisis on human development and the MDGs in Africa (Pedro Conceição, Shantanu Mukherjee and Shivani Nayyar) - The triple crisis (financial, climate change, food) and the global aid architecture (Tony Addison, Channing Arndt and Finn Tarp).
