Governance Strategic Directions and Action Plan-2008-2012
The Governance Strategic Directions and Action Plan (GAP) for 2008-2012 is the African Development Bank’s guide for our support to regional member countries’ efforts to improve governance and fight corruption. Today the linkages between good governance and growth are better understood; as the GAP makes clear, “good governance is crucial for inclusive and sustained economic growth.” Research findings indicate that countries that improve their governance receive a 300 percent dividend – three times more income per capita in the long term. That is a huge return on investment and one we work to help countries capitalize on.
