African Governance Index

Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG) - is comprehensive statistical tool assessing African countries' performance in provision of public goods and services.

Consisting of 133 variables derived from 32 independent sources IIAG measures governance performance across 4 pillars: Safety and Rule of Law, Participation and Human Rights, Sustainable Economic Opportunity and Human Development. All-embracing nature of the index makes it fairly the best instrument for setting long-term political, social and economical goals concerning the African region.

One of the implications of IIAG-2013 is that since 2000, in average, governance performance has improved across all categories except Safety and Rule of Law. This implication, as well as the fact that 6% of countries experienced deterioration of overall governance performance during the 12-years period, makes it clear that the first priority goal should be maintenance of sustainable (or, in other words, balanced) development and equitable allocation of resources.
