Anglophone Africa


wsg logoCLEAR Anglophone Africa (CLEAR AA) works to develop and promote the use of evaluation in evidence based policy making to accelerate equitable development across Anglophone Africa. We believe that a strong grounding in the local context and a learning-through-practice approach will drive indigenisation and innovation in the field of evaluation. We support systems of evaluation across the region by strengthening the supply and demand for evaluation simultaneously.

Our host institution, the University of Witwatersrand's School of Governance, is the leading regional institution in the arena of governance, policy and development management for the public sector. Our affiliate, the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration, delivers CLEAR-AA programming in West Africa, in close collaboration with CLEAR Francophone Africa.

Wits School of Governance

Since 1993, Wits School of Governance has been at the forefront of an international movement to transform public and development management, and currently produces the largest number of postgraduates in its field in Southern Africa.

CLEAR AA forms one of two regional centres of excellence[1] within the WSG that provide specific expertise for students and academic enquiry. CLEAR AA works with the WSG in leading capacity development approaches to public sector managers and civil society organisations across Africa to:

  • Support national and local public policy development, governance frameworks and institutional arrangements;
  • Enhance management systems, mechanisms and modalities;
  • Strengthen service-delivery, strategic planning, programme development, monitoring and evaluation.

[1] The other centre is the Centre for Defence and Security
