    Introduction:

    NEPRU was set up in 1990 at the initiative of the Government of Namibia. In 1994 the Executive Board granted NEPRU US$ 2.4 million in support of a five-year program of activities.  During NEPRU’s first phase under the Foundation’s support, 1994 – 2000, the unit was strengthened institutionally and became established as a policy think tank with visible inputs for development policy management in Namibia. At its 24th Regular Meeting, in December 2000, the Executive Board approved a grant of US$ 2 million to NEPRU II.

    Project Description:

    The goal of the project is to strengthen research and policy analysis and continue to provide high quality economic information to policy makers.

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

Erastus Mwencha

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.


H.E. Erastus Mwencha, Chair, ACBF Executive Board
Lamin Momodou

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.


Mr. Lamin Momodou MANNEH, Director, UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa
Goodall Gondwe

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


Hon. Goodall Gondwe, former Chair of the ACBF Board of Governors and Minister of Finance – Malawi
Ken Ofori Atta

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.


Hon Ken Ofori Atta, Chair of the ACBF Board of Governors and Minister of Finance - Ghana
