About:

The Africa Progress Panel connects the influence of our Panel members with cutting edge policy analysis to advocate for equitable and sustainable development in Africa, especially on those policy issues that are critical for Africa's development and where the nature of our organisation means we bring significant comparative advantage.

Our Panel members have unusual access to the highest level of policy makers in Africa and across the globe and can speak with an African voice.

Their influence gives the Panel the ability to leverage and to broker knowledge, innovations and collaborations for action. The most profound policy changes occur when decision-makers hear new voices and opinions that they like and trust. We can bring such people together, including across different sectors - government, business, and civil society.

The Panel also have exceptional networks of policy analysts including academics and policy practitioners in Africa. By combining these policy analysts with a focus on Africa, we contribute towards generating more evidence-based policies -- much needed in an often fact free and misinformation driven environment.

But in a rapidly changing world, we respond quickly and effectively to Africa's changing context and our positions serve all Africans.
