    Introduction:

    The SADC Parliamentary Forum was established in 1996 as the community’s parliamentary institution to strengthen the capacity of SADC by involving representatives of the people in the implementation of SADC programs and projects.  In December 2004, the Executive Board approved a grant of US$ 2.6 million to the SADC Parliamentary Forum Secretariat. 

    Project Description:

    The overall goal is to create an institutional framework for equipping members of parliament, parliamentary staff and parliamentary institutions in the SADC region with knowledge, skills and information that enhance their professional performance in implementing their mandates.

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.
