Wars in Africa wipe out aid gains
By Peter Biles
BBC News, Johannesburg

A new report on armed conflict in Africa has shown that the cost to the continent's development over a 15-year period was nearly $300bn.

The research was undertaken by a number of non-governmental organisations, including Oxfam.

It says that the cost of conflict was equal to the amount of money received in aid during the same period.

This is the first time that analysts have calculated the overall effects armed violence on development.

Between 1990 and 2005, 23 African nations were involved in conflict, and on average this cost African economies $18bn a year.

The researchers say that although the number of armed conflicts is falling in Africa there is no room for complacency, with little hope of a swift settlement in either Sudan or Somalia.



And some costs of war, such as increased military spending and a struggling economy continue long after the fighting has stopped.

Writing in the introduction, the Liberian president, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, says "this is money that Africa can ill afford to lose... Thousands of hospitals, schools and roads could have been built" with the money.

The report concludes that African governments have taken encouraging steps at a regional level to control arms transfers, but that what is needed is a global, legally-binding arms trade treaty.

Is Africa poor because of war?

Is Africa poor because of war?

Fifteen years of conflicts have cost Africa about $300bn between 1990 and 2005, a study by Oxfam International has found.

This is equal to the amount of international aid received during the same period.

And the continent loses an average of around $18bn a year because of armed conflict.

Will this study influence the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty? How can the international arms trade be regulated? Would that help Africa develop? On what should Africa could have spent its lost billions? Send us your views.
