    The Center d’Analyse et De Renforcement des Capacités du Togo (Centre for Analysis and Capacity Building in Togo) - CADERT project is a result of the capacity needs assessment study of  “Programme National de Renforcement des Capacités” produced by the National Capacity Building Focal Point (SENAREC) with ACBF’s support in 2006. The study called for the intervention of all development partners in Togo and ACBF in particular, to strengthen the capacity of Government, private sector and civil society. This followed a prolonged sociopolitical crisis in Togo which led to a marked deterioration in institutional and human capacity needed to manage the development process. At its 41st Regular Meeting, in September 2009, the ACBF Executive Board approved a grant of US$ 2 million to CADERT.


    Project Description:

    The overall goal of CADERT is to strengthen the national economic policy analysis and management, and development programs in Togo.
    The objectives of CADERT are to:

    • Establish CADERT as a credible policy Think Tank;
    • Improve the national expertise in design, analysis and management of economic policies and development programs;
    • Provide the Government and other stakeholders with relevant research and analysis to guide policy formulation and inform decisions;
    • Strengthen national capacity to undertake broad-based policy dialogue;
    • Consolidate, generate, and disseminate knowledge on social economic development issues that would inform decisions in the development process.
    Expected Results:

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.
