  • Date of publication: 13 November 2014

Darlington Mushongera, researcher at the GCRO was invited by the Governance Innovation Institute (GovInn) to participate as a speaker in the workshop ‘Beyond-GDP in Africa: Innovative Ideas for a Regional Dashboard’. The workshop, which took place at the University of Pretoria from the 28th to the 29th of October 2014, brought together representatives of statistical offices of seven African countries. The aim of the workshop was to discuss a strategy to produce complementary measures of growth, which go beyond the standard GDP and suggest innovative ways of presentation. Darlington presented the recently launched ‘GCRO Barometer 2014’ as a model for measuring development on the basis of not just one but multiple indicators of development. GovInn has published online the proceedings of the workshop including an official statement about the initiative published with the Business Day.
