image of African Governance Report I - 2005

The African Governance Report is the result of extensive research covering governance practices in 27 African countries. The findings were subjected to a rigorous process of reviews that involved both national and international experts working on governance, political and economic issues. The report is the first Africa-driven study of its kind, which aimed at gauging more empirically citizens’ perceptions of the state of governance in their countries, while identifying major capacity deficits in governance practices and institutions and recommending best practices and solutions to address them.

Capacity has been identified as one of the missing links in Africa’s development and democratisation. In the context of governance, capacity entails the ability of an institution of governance—the legislature, executive, judiciary, civil society or the private sector—to perform its constitutionally or politically mandated functions or roles efficiently and effectively.
