Africa Capacity Report 2017 Building Capacity in Science, Technology and Innovation for Africa’s Transformation

Abstract(English): Africa Capacity Report (ACR) 2017 provides the framework for science, technology, and innovation (STI) development by focusing on the capacity dimensions in Africa. In particular, it examines the status of STI, delving into initiatives, challenges, and capacity gaps for African countries, regional economic communities (RECs), the African Union (AU), and nonstate actors to pursue STI-driven economic activities. The status of Africa’s development is closely linked to its capacity to deploy STI for more inclusive sustainable development and transformation, which is why ACR 2017’s theme is so relevant. It lays emphasis on the need to build STI capacity in Africa so as to achieve the AU’s Agenda 2063 and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
