Reflecting on the 2018 Index report, Mo Ibrahim, Chair of the Foundation said, “There are many positive trends emerging from this year’s Index.

“Fifteen countries out of the 34 who register progress in Overall Governance over the last decade even manage to accelerate their pace of improvement in the last five years.

“Among those, Côte d’Ivoire, Morocco, and Kenya display the most impressive progression, stepping up from 41st, 25th and 19th to 22nd, 15th and 11th ranks over the past decade.

“On average on the continent, improvements in indicators related to Health and Infrastructure stand out.

“There are also recent and welcome improvements in Rule of Law and Transparency & Accountability, even if scores in the latter are still low,” Ibrahim said.

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation was established in 2006 with a focus on the critical importance of leadership and governance in Africa, by providing tools to assess and support progress in leadership and governance.

The IIAG provides an annual assessment of the quality of governance in African countries and is the most comprehensive collection of data on African governance.
