Guinea-Bissau is currently one of the least developed countries in the world, ranking 178th out of 189 countries on the Human Development Index (2019). We study the economic and human development outlook to 2040. We show that economic growth will improve the human condition in Guinea-Bissau (extreme poverty, undernourishment and child stunting), but that progress remains stunted without addressing broader development progress in education, governance and infrastructure.
