The Mo Ibrahim Foundation released the 2018 Ibrahim Index of Africa Governance (IIAG) report this week.
Over the last decade, Overall Governance has on average maintained a moderate upward trend, with three out of four of Africa’s citizens now living in a country where governance has improved.
However, the 2018 IIAG Report also shows that despite strong GDP growth over the last ten years, Africa has failed to generate economic opportunities for its booming youth population.
On Talk Africa with Beatrice Marshall this week, Mo Ibrahim talks of why African governments need to rely on data to drive policy making.
This weeks guests are:
