Tax Justice Network-Africa (TJN-A) brings together 23 civil society groups from across five African countries to promote socially just and progressive taxation systems in Africa while also representing African perspectives in international tax reform discussions. This grant would help TJN-A to generate empirical evidence on the costs of ineffective tax regimes and to advocate for the pro-poor tax policies that are necessary to fund broad-based access to social services. TJN-A would also strengthen the capacity of national tax coalitions and enlist the support of the media and trade unions to ensure that African countries adopt responsible tax practices.
