Good Governance Africa (GGA) was established in 2012 as an independent, registered non-profit organisation – with offices in South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana – with the aim of promoting better governance in Africa to improve the lives of all citizens.
We research, analyse and interpret information aligned with our focus areas across context-driven centres in Africa. GGA conducts targeted research, promotes fact-based knowledge and propagates ethical values and aligned strategic partnerships.

Through our flagship publications, the quarterly Africa in Fact journal and annual Africa Survey, GGA generates and publishes content representing an Afro-centric voice, with hard-hitting reportage and in-depth analysis, including key economic, social and political indicators on all the countries on the continent.
