policy brief 1 eng.pdf.jpgBuilding Capacity for Domestic Resource Mobilization: The Role of the Civil Society
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Mar-2016 in English language
The policy brief by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) highlights that while it is widely agreed that domestic resource mobilization is the way to go, the 2015 Africa Capacity Report shows that this may not be achieved because of one missing link: the capacity to do so. It highlights that the civil society, which consists of organized groups and institutions that are independent of the state, can play a leading role in bargaining with Government on behalf of the people around effective strategies for mobilizing domestic resource and&#...
policy brief 2 eng.pdf.jpgBuilding Capacity for Domestic Resource Mobilization: The Role of the Government
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Oct-2016 in English language
Africa adopted an industrialization strategy, and committed to implement Agenda 2063 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), all of which require adequate funding. Given that no African country fully achieved all the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) largely due to funding constraints, domestic resource mobilization is therefore a very critical issue. Domestic resource mobilization is defined as the generation of savings from domestic resources and their allocation to economically and socially productive investments as well as accounting for such allocation. Africa has the capa...
policy brief 4 eng.pdf.jpgBuilding Capacity for Domestic Resource Mobilization: The Role of Development Partners
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Dec-2016 in English language
Africa’s ability to deliver on the ambitious post-2015 Agenda (also called the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals) and the African Union Agenda 2063 largely depends on the availability of adequate financial resources. But the funding sources for development programs have been neither stable nor predictable, particularly after the global financial crisis in 2008. It has become clear that while donor financing remains important, overreliance on donor funding will not sustainably drive the success of the two continental agendas, hence the need to focus on other developm...
policy brief 3 Eng.pdf.jpgBuilding Capacity for Domestic Resource Mobilization: Role of the Private Sector
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Dec-2016 in English language
Success in implementing Agenda 2063 and the Sustainable Development Goals depends largely on the availability and adequacy of resources. Africa realizes that industrialization is the way to go, as outlined in the two continental development plans, but it is inevitable that resources to fund these programs must be mobilized domestically. Domestic resource mobilization (DRM)1 was recognized as one of the six leading sources of finance for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but many African countries did not fully achieve the MDGs due to overreliance on donor...
Occasional Paper 27 En.pdf.jpgPolicy and Institutional Dimensions of Africa's Political Economy in an Age of Globalization
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2016 in English language
The advent of political independence allowed most Sub-Saharan countries to determine the appropriate mix of policies and institutions that would enable them to achieve rapid socioeconomic development. But experiences across the continent have so far yielded mixed results, and the search for an effective political economy model in the face of a rapidly globalizing world remains an ongoing challenge for most countries. In this study produced by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) Strategic Studies Project, we ask why some developing countries seem to be...
Occasional Paper 26 English.pdf.jpgThe Challenge of African Youth Unemployment
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Feb-2016 in English language
This Occasional Paper submits that Africa’s youth unemployment requires long-term, deliberate, well-targeted, and coordinated interventions. Addressing it requires integrated, comprehensive, and long-term approaches to rural development that provide an enabling legal framework, stem rural-urban migration, and ensure that educational systems provide marketable skills.
