'Doing development differently'.

 

The Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative (AGI) supports African governments be more effective to improve the lives of the world's poorest people. Andy advises heads of state across Africa on how to deliver their development agendas. He helped set up President Kagame's Strategy and Policy Unit in Rwanda and to establish core executive functions in South Sudan. He has also written and spoken publically on smart aid and development, including at the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University and the London School of Economics.

 

Andy joined AGI from the UK government where he worked as a Senior Policy Adviser on Education in the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit in London. Before that Andy worked for the University of Oxford on definitions and measures of poverty in the UK and in Africa (for more information and a list of publications see www.casasp.ox.ac.uk).
