The GIZ-Good Financial Governance in Africa programme (GFG) promotes transparency and accountability in public financial management and is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), co-funded by the European Union (EU) and Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland for the Multi Donor Action (MDA) Project on Fighting Illicit Financial Flows (IFF) in Africa. In this second phase of implementation, the objective is to be a change actor in the areas of taxation, budgeting, auditing, legislative oversight and Illicit Financial Flows in supporting systemic changes in Africa.
The backbone of the programme is the partnership with Pan-African networks in the areas of taxation, budgeting and fiscal oversight to support the strengthening public financial management capacities across Africa. These partners are: the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF), the Collaborative African Budget Reform Initiative (CABRI), the African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI) and the African Organisation of Public Account Committees (AFROPAC). Moreover, the GIZ-Good Financial Governance in Africa programme is implementing the MDA project in contributing to reducing IFFs in Africa by supporting the African Union Commission’s (AUC) facilitating role in fighting IFFs in Africa.
The Good Financial Governance in Africa programme supports these partner organisations in offering knowledge, training and fostering exchange and collaboration between members by developing and applying technical tools and methodologies at country level to improve financial governance.
