Summary Recent global changes have placed regional integration at the center of Africa's political and economic agenda. This atlas, containing maps, statistics and analyses, describes the West African region, its population, settlement, territories, its economy and its vulnerabilities. It analyzes the developments and the ways in which West Africa is conforming to a constantly changing global environment. The atlas also identifies the medium- and long-term trends and provides elements for strategic thinking on the future.--Publisher's description
