World Bank to boost lending for African infrastructure projects

Financial Express article:

"The World Bank plans to increase its funding for infrastructure projects in Africa by 30% over the next few years in a bid to accelerate development and poverty alleviation on the world's poorest continent."

The funding increase underlines the need for UNESCO's new program to strengthen developing country capacity in engineering and science. Engineers are needed to implement these infrastructure projects, and to run the infrastructure.
