Parliamentary Network Africa (PNAfrica) is a convenor of civil society organisations and journalists towards supporting parliaments and promoting parliamentary openness across Africa. Started as a newspaper project reporting on the Parliament of Ghana in 2015, PNAfrica later registered under the laws of the Republic of Ghana as a non-profit and non-partisan organisation with a regional focus. We have emerged as reputable parliamentary monitoring civil society organisation that has impacted parliamentary actors (CSOs, journalists, MPs, business associations etc.) from almost all countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, through our partnered projects, trainings, publications, events and speaking engagements.
With a vision to “promote open parliaments across Africa,” the organisation which is headquartered in Accra, advances this through four strategic priorities as follows - Strengthening and Supporting Parliaments in Africa; Building the capacity of parliamentary journalists and promoting access to information; Convening civil society for knowledge management; and Bringing parliaments closer to citizens through accountable and inclusive programs that impact the livelihood of the people of Africa.
Promoting Parliamentary openness through institutional collaboration and using new media and digital tools to promote citizen engagement.
