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) and Published 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 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) and Published 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 ...
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) and Published 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...

Occasional Paper 28 En.pdf.jpgWhich Inequalities Matter for Africa's Sustained Growth and Poverty Reduction?
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 11-Aug-2017 in English language
This paper produced by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) examines the growth, poverty, and inequality dynamics. The findings suggest that policy efforts should target class inequality, especially gender and age related. Among other recommendations, this paper suggests that countries like South Africa should shift focus from interracial inequality to inter-class inequality broadly, which is affecting its economic performance. The aim is to provoke discussion, encourage further investigation, and lay bare for action the critical capacity challenges at the center of Afri...

The paper assesses the causes and impacts of youth unemployment in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, and Swaziland. It profiles and characterizes the status and nature of youth unemployment as well as the strategies and programs—and identifies the challenges, implications, and gaps—to find ways to address it. Stakeholder a...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF); André Corrêa d'Almeida and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2013 in English language
This research combines Institutional Rational Choice (IRC), the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework, Return Migration theories and International Development theories to understand how Mozambican highly skilled returnees (HSRs) interact with the institutional setting in the home country while pursuing their personal aspirations. Institutional setting in this context is defined as a multidimensional space of factors – institutions plus other contextual variables co-evolving as they interact with each other – in which HSRs try to mobilize resources over time towards thei...
