Good Governance Africa (GGA), a pan-African based research and advocacy organisation, works to enhance governance in Africa to improve the lives of all citizens.
Through applied research, fact-based knowledge and context-driven African centres, Good Governance Africa is an advocate for exemplary governance in Africa. GGA researches, analyses and interprets information to produce fact-based information.
Our focus areas include: local governance, natural resources, security, child development, business enablement, innovation and sustainability, property rights, land administration, and the promotion of ethical values and spirituality.
Through our research we provide fact-based knowledge on governance in Africa with a focus on key areas including local governance and grassroots democracy, natural resources, national security, child development and youth formation, ethical values and spirituality; business enablement, extractives, power and oil reform, and enabling innovation and sustainability drivers.
Read stories on governance and related issues from leading writers across the continent in Africa in Fact, and access key research, including trend analysis, in the Africa Survey, a resource with well over 1,600 political, economic and social indicators for all African countries.
Transparency, accountability and respect for the rule of law are fundamental tenets for the social contract between governments and citizens. We work with partners from the public and private sectors, communities, civil society and faith-based organisations to promote improved governance and inclusive grassroots democracy.
