African Governance Showcase
Share |

For three consecutive years, the IoDSA in conjunction with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and sponsored by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) hosted a case study competition sought case studies that are recent and relevant to the African continent corporate governance environment and landscape. 

The competition encouraged global submissions from participants on all areas of African corporate governance. The case studies were required to be based on corporate governance cases in Africa, within organisations which could be expected to, or chose to, apply the principles contained in the King Reports on Corporate Governance in South Africa or the relevant corporate governance codes of the country within which the organisation operates.

About the sponsors:

International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, is an international organization with a mission to promote sustainable private sector investment in developing countries, to reduce poverty and improve people’s lives. IFC’s Africa Corporate Governance Program, funded by SECO, provides advisory services to help strengthen the development of the private sector in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) is Switzerland's competence center for all core issues relating to economic policy. Its Economic Cooperation and Development Division is responsible for the planning and implementation of economic cooperation and development activities with middle income developing countries, with countries of Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (transition countries). Through its interventions, SECO seeks to ease its partner countries' integration into the world economy and promote economic growth that is socially as well as environmentally responsible and climate-friendly.
