Agendas 2063 et 2030 : Is Africa on track ?

African Gouvernance Report
Mo Ibrahim Foundation

10 décembre 2019

For the purpose of the 2019 African Governance Report, key overlapping thematic areas between the Agenda 2063, Agenda 2030 and 2018 IIAG frameworks have been identified. The Priority Areas and Targets contained in the FTYIP have constituted the starting point for this analysis. The integrated nature of governance and development challenges means that overlaps are numerous however, we have in this report focused on those that we considered strongest overlaps.
In a few instances, different numbers of indicators relating to an Agenda may be mentioned in the report. When this is the case, it reflects discrepancies at source and over time (e.g. additional indicators are likely to have been added in the past years).
For the measurability classification of targets contained in the FTYIP, MIF’s Research Team has classified them in three main broad groups : clearly quantifiable, less clearly quantifiable and not clearly quantifiable. Clearly quantifiable targets encompass three groups : those that appear to be numeric/ quantifiable at country level ; those that refer to the achievement of a continental target for which an action at the country level is required, but measurement has to be done at the continental level ; and those that have a dichotomous nature and belong to continental initiatives or programmes to be adopted, implemented or be made operational. Less clearly quantifiable targets include those that pertain to continental initiatives, but they are less or not at all quantifiable, often employing very qualitative wording. Not clearly quantifiable targets are those that appear to be very qualitative and are characterised by an aspirational nature, which makes them hard to measure.
This report also explores the correlations between different measures in the Index dataset. Correlation is a statistical measure that describes the extent to which two variables are associated. The correlation coefficient indicates the strength and direction of the relationship between two variables. Correlation does not equal causation and users are advised to take care when interpreting these statistics. Correlation coefficients shown in this report are rounded to two decimal places.
This report makes use of the latest available data from a wide range of sources. A reference list containing all the sources used for this document is provided at the end of the report. Each graph is also accompanied by their respective data source.
Sources used are not always the primary data sources.
African averages are, in most cases, taken directly from source. When they have been calculated for the purpose of this report, they are unweighted (e.g. Open Data Watch’s Open Data Inventory used in this report). As not asources provide data for the 54 African countries, some averages may not includell data from all countries.datis report ara All the data included in the publicly available. Data were correct at the time of research (the last access date for each variable is provided in the references).
In some cases, the numbers may not add up to the total due to rounding. Unless indicated otherwise, population statistics are taken from the 2019 revision of the World Population Prospects from the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA).
