PAO Development Programme

When Professional Accountancy Organisations (PAOs) function effectively they deliver and support quality accountancy professionals who further the quality of governance, financial management, reporting, and auditing, which in turn promotes growth and development in the public and private sectors, enhances transparency and accountability in the use of public resources, improves the design and delivery of vital public services, enhances the effectiveness of development assistance, and attracts foreign direct investment.

Many development partners and donor agencies recognise the important role of PAOs in strong and sustainability organisations, markets, and economies, and therefore fund projects to build the capacity of PAOs and their members – see (MOSAIC). As representative of the accountancy profession in Africa, PAFA is an ideal partner for such projects delivered in Africa.
