Tax Transparency in Africa 2022: Africa Initiative Progress Report


Tax Transparency in Africa is a key output of the Africa Initiative, a programme established in 2014 to ensure that African countries are equipped to exploit the latest improvements in global transparency, to better tackle tax evasion and other illicit financial flows and ultimately improve domestic resource mobilisation to support their economic development.

The 2022 edition, a co-production of the Global Forum, the African Union Commission and the African Tax Administration Forum, covers 38 African countries and informs decision makers and citizens on the continent’s latest progress and remaining challenges. 
The launch was part of the 11th meeting of the Africa Initiative, which was held from 14 to 16 June in Nairobi, Kenya. The event gathered high-level representatives and experts from tax administrations, regional and international organisations, as well as academia and civil society organisations.
