Top Donors for Democracy and Good Governance in Africa

The essence of democracy assistance in Africa has focused on various sectors of development but, there still exist issues under-served and that are in need of being put into focus.

According to a UN report, African leaders and politicians themselves do recognize the fact that western systems of democracy have failed to take root in many African countries. This failure is the root cause of the lack of security and peace in many countries.

Also, governance has increasingly become a major instrument for the successful growth performance and development purposes in the world. In Africa, poor governance has led to poor economic growth and it is manifested through corruption, political instability, ineffective rule of laws and institutions.

Donors worldwide, through their funding programs are providing assistance for the enhancement of democracy and good governance in Africa. We have created a list of such donors that provide funding for African democracy and good governance.
