Africa: New Phase of Global Economic Governance Africa Project

analysis

DNA Economics and Tutwa Consulting are extremely pleased to be collaborating on a new project, Global Economic Governance Africa (GEG Africa), the first phase of which SAIIA managed from 2012-2015.

Following consultations with stakeholders, this new phase will provide more in-depth political and economic analysis of evolving GEG policy priorities in South Africa and across the continent.

Sign up to the quarterly GEG Africa newsletter to receive new research and invitations from the project, along with the latest expert analyses on issues making headlines in the world of global economic governance.

Funded by the UK's Department for International Development (DFID), the programme endeavours to create an international system of global economic governance that works better for the poor in Africa. It is part of the UK's shared priority with South Africa to accelerate the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals through an improved system of global economic governance.

An excerpt from the latest article by the project is included below:

However, economic and social inclusion is becoming a more pressing problem. In the developed world, and particularly in the southern and eastern regions of Europe, youth unemployment remains high. Economic inclusion has long been a challenge for developing countries, notably in Africa, our core concern. Consequently, there is a concerted effort in global economic governance forums to create policies that are more inclusive, particularly for developing countries.
