NAI The role of the international.pdf.jpgThe Role of the International Community in the Eritrean Refugee Crisis
Article, Created By Redie Bereketeab published in 2017 in English language
This paper examines the role of the international community in the Eritrean refugee crisis. It critically analyses the international community's, as represented by UN, AU, EU and US, failure to fulfill its obligation. The UN, OAU, EU and US were witnesses and guarantors of the Algiers Agreement. As such, they assumed responsibility of making sure of the implementation of the Ethiopia-Eritrea Border Commission Verdict. The Algiers Agreement empowered the guarantors to invoke UN Chapter VII, if one or both of the parties violates its commitment. Fourteen ...
The promotion of UNHU.pdf.jpgThe promotion of unhu in Zimbabwean secondary schools through the teaching of Shona literature : Masvingo urban district, a case study
Thesis, Created By Viriri, Eunitah published in Nov-2017 in English language
This study examines the extent to which the teaching of Shona novels can be used to promote unhu (humanness) in Zimbabwean secondary schools where there has been a call for the teaching of cultural values. The school syllabi for Shona make this position abundantly clear. For that reason, anchoring the discussion on the role of literature in Africa as expounded by African scholars such as Ngugi wa Thiong’o (1981), p’Bitek (1986) and Achebe (1989) among others, the study observes that literature plays an important role in moulding character through&...

ACR2017 English.pdf.jpgAfrica Capacity Report 2017 Building Capacity in Science, Technology and Innovation for Africa’s Transformation
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2017 in English language
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...
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2017 in English language
ACBF’s consultations with a broad cross-section of African governments, private sector, civil society, and development partners show that capacity constraints are most visible in addressing major problems facing the continent. Among these problems are climate change, youth unemployment, migration, gender inequality, infrastructure deficits, domestic resource mobilization, and regional integration. Addressing them will require massive investments in capacity development. Capacity development in its various dimension—human, institutional, and soft (leadership, political will, and upholding panAfrican values)—is vital&...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Sep-2017 in English language
The paper produced by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) shows that investment, human capital formation, debt, and overseas development assistance drive Africa’s economic growth. It recommends paying attention to capacity, which is critical to making Africa’s growth sustainable and inclusive. Continental, regional, and national long-term growth plans require stronger capacities to improve economic governance, align national and subnational institutions, coordinate planning and financing ministries, and cultivate a culture of committed leadership to stir economies when times are hard&...

2017 BoG Issues Paper.pdf.jpgACBF Board of Governors Issues Paper: Accessing Funds for Development: Required Capacities for Resource Mobilization and Absorption
Book/Monograph, Created 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...
policy brief 6 eng.pdf.jpgBuilding Capacity in Science, Technology, and Innovation for Africa’s Transformation: The Role of Governments
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-May-2017 in English language
The call to industrialize and modernize Africa has become more pressing in recent years especially given the high rates of youth unemployment. The African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the Common African Position on Agenda 2030 identify science, technology, and innovation (STI) as key enablers to achieving this. In response, Africa adopted a 10-year Science, Technology, and Innovation Strategy (STISA–2024). The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) STI Survey (2016) confirms the importance of STI strategies and capacity development in African countries. This policy brief ...
