Activity Report of the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF)
MetadataShow full item record
The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) was created in 1991 in response to the shortage of capacity to build indigenous human and institutional capacity to promote sustainable development in Africa. The Foundation was designed to serve as a coordinating mechanism for donor support to capacity building in Africa, through the pooling of resources and a common governance and reporting system. To date, 40 African countries have become members of ACBF. ACBF has, however, continued to avail its support to all African countries regardless of their membership status. In recognition of its effective support to African countries, ACBF was designated by African Heads of States and Government a Specialized Agency of the African Union by Decision Assembly/AU/Dec.621 (XXVIII) of the 28th Assembly in January 2017.
