GGA West Africa Centre

(Accra, Ghana Office)

“Ending poverty and improving lives in a continent so rich in natural resources is highly possible if we systematically get leadership right, institutions to be effective and promote good governance practices across the board.” GGA-WA 2019

Beliefs of the Centre

The Good Governance Africa West Africa centre strongly believes that a democratic society with a proactive practice of transparency, accountability and the rule of law is on the right development pathway. GGA-WA, therefore, is deliberate in promoting these ideals in its programmes and activities across different sectors in Ghana and in other selected West African countries.

GGA-WA is a member of the following organisations:

  • The Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) – As an executive member of this coalition, we partner other CSOs that seek to push for fair, open, transparent and accountable governance in all public and private spheres.
  • CSOs Platform for the Monitoring of the SDGs – As a member of this platform, GGA-WA and selected CSOs monitor and report on the progress of various actors on the implementation of the SDGs.
  • The Ghana Urbanisation Think Tank (GUTT) – This year, GGA-WA was invited to join the GUTT to assist in the deliberations on emerging urban developmental issues in Ghana. The think tank is facilitated by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD) in collaboration with the Urban Management Institute (UMI), the Coalition of Urban Transition (CUT) and the African Centre for Cities (ACC).
