DMS 008.pdf.jpgADDRESSING AFRICA’S YOUTH EMPLOYMENT AND FOOD SECURITY CRISIS: THE ROLE OF AFRICAN AGRICULTURE IN JOB CREATION
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...
ACR2015 English.pdf.jpgThe Africa Capacity Report ACR 2015: Capacity Imperatives for Domestic Resource Mobilization in Africa
Book/Monograph, Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2015 in English language
The Africa Capacity Report (ACR) 2015 sends a very clear message: with official development assistance to Africa diminishing, the continent will have to rely more on mobilizing domestic resources if it is to implement its development agenda. The ACR 2015 shows that this is possible, with a good number of African countries providing practical success stories based on strategies and initiatives that can easily be adapted to other countries. However, the capacity gaps to generate savings and taxes from domestic resources and allocate them to economically and&#...

Risks ENG.pdf.jpgAssessment of Internal and External Risks Associated with the Implementation of the African Union's Agenda 2063
Created By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and Published By African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) published in 1-Jan-2015 in English language
This study examines the risk factors—internal and external to Africa— that could compromise Agenda 2063’s vision, transformation framework, and planning programme over the next five decades. The analysis of these risk factors is accompanied by considerations of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that could shape each of the seven aspirations of Agenda 2063. While there might be elements of force majeure (as with climate change and natural disasters), we argue that many risk factors are embedded as inherent structural features across Africa but are&#...

The digest includes all major instruments of the OAU and AU. Each of them...

Why South Sudan conflict is proving intractable : Ugandan forces and lack of international commitment two reasons
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bereketeab, Redie and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2015
In December 2013 war broke out in South Sudan as a result of the power struggle between President Salva Kiir and the ex-vice president Riek Machar. Violence from both sides led to massacres and millions of displaced persons. Agreements to end hostilities have so far been violated. A sustainable peace calls for Ugandan forces to leave South Sudan. The political parties have to reform and be a part of national reconciliation instead of fighting one another.
Food security now or wait for research to assess risks? : genetically modified crops and smallholder farmers in Africa
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Arvidsson, Tommy and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Agrarian Change, Property and Resources; Uppsala published in 2015
Genetically modified (GM) crops are by proponents considered as a possible solution to the food and nutrition problems in developing countries. However, there are also concerns of how side effects may affect environment and human health. These will probably still remain unknown for decades. But can Africa wait 30 years for research to give a definite answer about the risks connected with biotechnology?
