About TJNA

The Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA) is a Pan-African organisation and a member of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice. Launched in January 2007 during the World Social Forum (WSF) held in Nairobi, TJNA promotes socially just, accountable and progressive taxation systems in Africa. It advocates for tax policies with pro-poor outcomes and tax systems that curb public resource leakages and enhance domestic resource mobilisation.

TJNA and Fair Tax Monitor

The Fair Tax Monitor (FTM) project started in December 2014 as part of the CRAFT (Capacity for Research and Advocacy for Fair Taxation) program. It was developed by Oxfam Novib (ON) in collaboration with Tax Justice Network-Africa (TJNA) and other partner organizations in the pilot countries: Bangladesh (SUPRO), Pakistan (Indus Consortium), Senegal (Forum Civil) and Uganda (SEATINI). It was initiated as a pilot project to develop a common research framework and an online advocacy tool, and to subsequently test them in practice in the selected focus countries.

Currently, TJNA Coordinates and provides Technical Support to the development of FTM Studies in seven African countries, namely: Tunisia, Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, and Uganda.
