Playing a catalytic role

Africa Practice marks its 20th anniversary in 2023. It’s a good moment to reflect on whether we are fulfilling our mission to play a catalytic role in the transformation of Africa. I hope by exploring this site that you will come to the same conclusion as me – that we are a positive force for change, but that we can also do more, much more to realise impact at scale.
