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) and Published 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&#...

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); Léautier, Frannie A.; Hanson, Kobena and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2013 in English language
Following the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, economic growth has eluded many countries. Africa, on the other hand, is projected to host seven of the ten fastest growing economies in the period from 2011-2012. It has long been understood that high economic growth is a prerequisite for job creation, causing analysts to worry about the projected low global growth scenario and its implications for economies that have either high or stubborn levels of unemployment. However, long run comparisons across Africa have shown differential performance, with some countrie...

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...
