Governance Insights and Analytics
Our governance insights and analytics (GIA) team is the primary custodian of the Africa Digital Databank (ADD). The ADD regularly ingests new data sources through our proprietary API tool. Our GIA team ensures the optimal functionality of the ADD. Driven by the ADD, we are also the engine room for building GGA’s monthly Intelligence Reports. These reports provide key insights for private sector decision-makers into Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance across the continent and serve as a foundation for our advisory arm.
Furthermore, we provide research design and methodological support, along with insights and analytics to the other three research streams, which equips those teams to produce high-quality research products. There is a vital feedback loop between the research streams and the GIA team, in that we not only provide insights and analytics to those streams but produce graphics and relevant animations to drive our audience’s attention to the key governance matters of the day. This ensures that the work produced by the research teams does not gather cyber-dust but rather gains maximum exposure, appropriately targeted at the stakeholders we are trying to influence.
Finally, the GIA team is responsible for managing our Governance Coefficient product, which evaluates the relationship between two relatively independent governance variables – government effectiveness and citizen power. We show that, notwithstanding a few exceptions, countries that perform relatively well on these two scores tend to enjoy higher GDP per capita over time.
