Africa Governance Institute

After a discussion between the chairman of the Commission of the African Union and the Regional Director for Africa of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Africa Governance Institute (AGI) came to be in 2003. The Institute does research on all forms of governance and works to promote the advancement of developmental governance in Africa.

Strengthening the local governance structure is key to enhance development projects, and the AGI uses their research findings to advocate for participatory governance. The Institute also organizes trainings to implement solutions for the most prominent governance issues throughout Africa.

A principle mission of the AGI is to transform ideas into actions. This is a key initiative because during meetings, committee members and other constituents often come up with great ideas, which often do not amount to anything; however, AGI ensures that their visions become a reality.
