Good Governance Africa is a pan-African research and advocacy organisation working to enhance governance in Africa to improve the lives of all citizens.

Through applied research, fact-based knowledge, community initiatives, context-driven African centres and our global team of researchers, professionals, writers and associates, Good Governance Africa is an advocate for exemplary governance in Africa.

GGA researches, analyses and interprets information to produce fact-based knowledge in five core focus areas: local governance, natural resources, national security, child development and youth formation, and the promotion of ethical values and spirituality.

Our work is also realised through the conceptualisation and production of our flagship publications, the Africa Survey and quarterly Africa in Fact journal.
