What we do

BAAC emphasises the importance of good corporate governance practices and the eradication of critical areas in the business environment that allow corruption to flourish. Its work examines the entire corporate, regulatory and stakeholder framework and ensures effective governance including new voluntary and mandatory codes and company law, as well as developing joint government-business strategies.

Why corruption matters

Corruption is a global problem and a serious drain on economic and human development in Africa. Corruption undermines democratic institutions, retards economic development and contributes to government instability.  


Each BAAC national programme develops consultative working structures through which nationally defined strategies are implemented to improve public service delivery and standards of leadership behaviour.  

Where we operate

BAAC is currently being implemented in ten African countries: Botswana, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Cameroon, Lesotho, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Ghana.  

Key African anti-corruption initiatives

There are a number of key anti-corruption initiatives relevant to anti-corruption measures in Africa some of which BAAC works in partnership with in the various countries of operation.
