    Since its inception, ZEPARU has been providing research-based policy options to policy makers in Zimbabwe as well as participating in key policy-making processes, policy task forces and working groups, and contributing, through identification and assistance, to the formulation of policies and strategies that have the potential to address the country’s current macroeconomic and development challenges .  At its 39th Regular Meeting, in April 2008, the Executive Board approved a grant of US$ 1.7 million to ZEPARU II.

    Project Description:

    The goal of ZEPARU Phase II is to support the formulation and implementation of coherent, consistent and effective economic policies for good economic management and poverty reduction in Zimbabwe.

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.

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.

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.
