Over the last 10 years, there were more countries in advance in Sub-Saharan Africa than in any other region, and some of those advances have been substantial. The Gambia’s score increased by 60 points between 2012 and 2022 – the biggest increase recorded over any timeframe.
Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are also proportionately over-represented in terms of countries in advance over each of our key timeframes. Countries in the region constitute more than half (57%) of advances over the last year, 36% over the last 5 years, and 43% over the last decade.
