After its first 20 years of growth under the leadership of its co-founders and an executive committee, Afrobarometer in 2019 completed an extensive organizational review before launching a revised structure emphasizing partnership, capacity building, and sustainability.

Changes include Afrobarometer’s formal registration as a non-profit corporation headquartered in Ghana and steps in 2019-2020 to strengthen governance, management oversight, strategic adaptability, resource mobilization, and African capacity-building programs.

The new infrastructure will also enable Afrobarometer to make its wealth of data – an open-source global public good – more accessible, timely, and relevant to a wider range of users.
