    In 2009 the CEEG submitted a request to the ACBF for funding support to undertake policy research analysis to complement and therefore improve the ability of key government policy institutions, private sector and civil society organizations to contribute toward the achievement of Mozambique’s development priorities.  ACBF approved a grant for US$2.2 million for this initiative.

    The specific objectives of the project were to: (i) strengthen the capacity of CEEG to support macroeconomic and sector policy formulation and analysis in Mozambique, and (ii) Enhance the research and advocacy capabilities of CEEG stakeholders

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.
