The Global Alliance of Impact Lawyers (GAIL) launches its first Regional Board for Africa. The elected board members are passionate about the role lawyers can play in Africa to build economies that prioritise people and the planet.

We want to thank the 50+ lawyers who formed the GAIL Africa Working Group in 2023 and worked to establish the first GAIL Africa Regional Board for 2024.

NanaAma Botchway, Managing Partner at n. dowuona & company (Ghana) is the inaugural Regional Chair, leading the first year of GAIL Africa.

“I am keen to join GAIL’s Regional Board in Africa because I am committed to promoting social and environmental justice through the legal system. As a leading lawyer on the continent, I believe that my skills could be instrumental in advancing GAIL’s mission.”

Joining NanaAma Botchway are nine Regional Board Members:
· Camilla Achieng Omollo, Legal Counsel at Mirova SunFunder (Kenya)
· Jessica Blumenthal, Director at ENS (South Africa)
· Didier Boua Doux, Managing Partner at Kwaliance (Côte d’Ivoire)
