Africa Capacity Index

The Africa Capacity Index (ACI) is the Africa Capacity Report (ACR) primary index, and the signature trademark, which is published annually by ACBF. The ACI is a composite index computed from four sub-indices, each of which is an aggregated measure calculated on the basis of both a quantitative and a qualitative assessment of various components that form a cluster. Cluster analysis was used to generate the sub measures. The clusters cover the following dimensions: policy environment; processes for implementation; development results at country level; and capacity development outcomes.



The Africa Capacity Indicators Report 2013 is now available for free download. The Report focuses on what African countries need to do individually and collectively to achieve effective management and good governance of the continent’s vast natural resource wealth.
