    Since independence in 1962, Burundi has experienced a series of cyclical conflicts that have led to waves of ethnic violence. The most serious of these erupted in 1993 and lasted for more than ten years, causing serious damage on the material and human capacity. The capacity building program is a response to the enormous challenges and capacity deficits that Burundi is facing after twelve years of conflict.  

    Project Description:

    The goal of the program is to contribute to the improvement of the economic performance and to the achievement of the Government’s development objectives under the PRSP through capacity building of State and non-State actors involved in the economic and financial management.

ACBF has been granted the status of a specialized agency because of the potential to transform Africa through capacity development.

The recognition of ACBF as the African Union’s Specialized Agency for Capacity Development launches the beginning of a new era for capacity building by ACBF, which will require an appropriate level of political commitment and financial support from all stakeholders.

The remarkable achievements ACBF has registered over the past 26 years is not by accident in our opinion. They have come through hard work, dedication, commitment, purposeful leadership, support from the member countries as well as productive partnership building.

Africa needs ACBF as much, probably more now, than at the time it was created in 1991.

Ghana’s partnership with ACBF is a tremendous blessing for us and therefore the opportunity for Ghana to host the 26th ACBF Board of Governors Meeting is something that we treasure.
