Academy Launches Global Standard for Transparent Research and Humanitarian Funding

Posted by Charles Clerck (Admin) 2 months ago

The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) today launches the Good Financial Grant Practice (GFGP), a global standard to promote transparency and strengthen the governance of grant funding worldwide.

The GFGP standard, developed in collaboration with the African Organization for Standardisation (ARSO), is the first such tool developed in Africa for international use.

Initially created as an African standard, the GFGP has attracted increasing interest ahead of its launch from multiple funders and grantees in Asia, South America and the UK, where government organisations have tested and endorsed it.

The GFGP was officially launched at the Science Forum South Africa on 12 December 2018.
