The African Governance Architecture (AGA) is a result of the Decision of the 15th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of African Union (AU) Heads of State and Government (AU/Dec.304 (XV) held in July 2010 which called for Pan-African Architecture on Governance. Accordingly, the African Union Commission established the AGA as a platform for dialogue between the various stakeholders, and with a mandate to promote good governance and strengthen democracy in Africa. The AGA also has a Platform which was established based on the Assembly of Heads of States and Governments affirmation of the importance of establishing an African Governance Platform in Assembly/AU/Dec.1 (XVI), a basis for facilitating harmonisation of instruments and coordination of initiatives in governance and democracy. The Platform was established as the institutional framework of the AGA, composed of AU Organs, Institutions and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) with a formal mandate for the promotion and sustenance of democracy, governance, and human rights in Africa. As an Organ of the African Union, the Committee is a member of the Platform. The AGA Platform Members meet annually and agree on joint flagship initiatives, guided by the AGA Roadmap. Following the Restructuring of the African Union Commission, the AGA is merged with the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA), hence renamed as AGA-APSA.
