Abdoulie Janneh, Executive Director, Liaison with Governments and Institutions in Africa for the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, participated in a two-day seminar on “State of Governance in Africa-Focus on Sierra Leone,” and the launching of the “Pay No Bribe Campaign” along with the “Open Government Partnership Consultations”. It was organised by the African Development Bank, the Government of Sierra Leone and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and hosted by His Excellency, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone. The Foundation made two presentations: ‘The State of Governance in Africa 2013 Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG)’ and ‘Sierra Leone’s Performance on the 2013 IIAG’. The session was attended by over 160 participants representing Ministries from Sierra Leone, Foreign Embassies, African and global multilateral institutions, Academia, Local Council as well as the private sector from 20th-21st February 2014. This event forms part of a series of stakeholder engagement programmes undertaken by Mr Janneh aimed at assisting various countries to better understand the 2013 IIAG as well as their country’s performance as it equates to both the regional and continental findings.
Sierra Leone’s performance in the 2013 IIAG:
The IIAG provides
- a framework for stakeholders to assess the delivery of public goods and services, and policy outcomes, in every African country
- a tool with which to govern, highlighting continental, regional, national and thematic governance results
The data are classified within four categories:
- Safety & Rule of Law
- Participation & Human Rights
- Sustainable Economic Opportunity
- Human Development.
The IIAG is compiled using many international and African sources.
