Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 3-Sep-2017 in English language
African countries are now implementing the Agenda 2063 and Agenda 2030 (also known as Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs), both requiring huge financial resources. Globally, large amounts of investable resources, mostly private, are available in advanced and emerging economies while domestic public resources, even in low-income countries, can be increased when the relevant capacities are in place. To efficiently mobilize the available resources, therefore, countries need to tackle the binding capacity constraints. These include human and institutional capacity to effectively manage&#x...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF); Obasanjo, Olusegun and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2015 in English language
Despite the abundance of agricultural resources, sub-Saharan Africa remains the world’s most food insecure region. HE Olusegun Obasanjo’s view is that there are many critical factors responsible for food insecurity in this region. They include undeveloped land tenure systems, high bank loan rates, inadequate availability of agricultural special banks, poor access to market information and prices, an unreliable market for farm produce and inadequate road network, transport and storage infrastructures for farm produce. There is also a lack of capacity for cooperative and va...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2012 in English language
A core message in the 2012 ACI Report is that improving the productivity and the economic returns of agriculture has immediate effects on poverty and hunger in at least three important ways: a) it increases the productivity and incomes of the majority of Africa’s poor, who work primarily in agriculture; b) it reduces food prices, which affect real incomes and poverty in urban areas; and, c) it generates important spillovers to the rest of the economy. Yet, countries need capacities of all kinds to make these productivity improvements and secu...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2014 in English language
The Africa Capacity Report (ACR) and its supporting indicators offer inputs for decisions on what to finance to develop capacity. Most countries are doing well on their policy environments and having processes in place to implement policies. Countries are doing less well on achieving development results and least on capacity development outcomes. The Report and its indicators also point to the regulatory and institutional reforms needed to better support public–private partnerships in capacity investment and building—and to the investments needed to further strengthen pub...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2015 in English language
The Africa Capacity Report (ACR) 2015 sends a very clear message: with official development assistance to Africa diminishing, the continent will have to rely more on mobilizing domestic resources if it is to implement its development agenda. The ACR 2015 shows that this is possible, with a good number of African countries providing practical success stories based on strategies and initiatives that can easily be adapted to other countries. However, the capacity gaps to generate savings and taxes from domestic resources and allocate them to economically and&#...

This publication produced by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) in conjuction with the African Union Commission (AUC) observes that the single biggest challenge to ownership of Africa’s development agenda and management of its key development programs is grounded in the issue of critical technical skill (CTS) in Africa. To achieve the vision of Agenda 2063, as well as Africa’s ideology and existential imperative to fulfill its destiny as a great continent of the future, it must own, use, and have faith in its own CTS professionals, trained...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2016 in English language
The African Union Commission’s highlighting of the importance of capacity dimensions for Agenda 2063 has been one of the missing links in previous development efforts. This time, implementation will be from a proper understanding of the capacity requirements (as encapsulated in this document). This document provides a conceptual and operational framing of imperatives and capacity issues required for delivering Agenda 2063. The nature of the assignment required a flexible system to be used for consultation, information and data gathering, and analysis. The findings in ...
