About us

BAAC is a programme of joint action by government and the private sector to tackle corruption. The programme was developed at the invitation of the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOG) to improve the conditions for doing business and thereby promote investment and sustainable development in Africa. The first project followed an invitation from the President of Botswana, and BAAC now operates in ten African countries. BAAC has been formally endorsed by the Presidents of Nigeria, Malawi and the Prime Minister of Cameroon. The programme supports practical initiatives which promote good governance and improve the investment climate.

BAAC aims to create partnerships between business and government to fight corruption and fraud through facilitating collective action, research, education training as well as the development and dissemination of best practice tools and guidelines.
