Governance

The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) operates within a three–tier governance structure comprising a Board of Governors, an Executive Board and a Secretariat. 

Board of Governors: The Board of Governors comprises representatives of ACBF member countries and non-African countries, as well as the World Bank, the African Development Bank and the United Nations Development Programme. The Governors are usually African Ministers of Finance and/or Economic Planning, Directors-General or other high level representatives of international development cooperation agencies for non-African countries. The Board of Governors is the highest policymaking body of the Foundation. Its main responsibility is to set the broad policies for the operation of the Foundation, as well as the appointment of the independent members and chairperson of the Executive Board. Ordinarily, the Board of Governors meets annually. The Board of Governors has a Bureau of three members, (Chairperson and two vice-Chairpersons) who are elected annually.

Executive Board: The Executive Board is charged with responsibility for operational policies, guidelines and strategies. The Executive Board meets ordinarily four times a year and is composed of experts in the field of capacity building in areas within ACBF's mandate. The ACBF Executive Board is made up of 12 members: three representatives of the sponsoring agencies and nine independent members. The Executive Secretary is an ex-officio member of the Executive Board. The Executive Board operates with the support of three committees: Operations Committee, Finance and Human Resources Committee, and Audit and Risk Committee. The Operations Committee examines and provides guidance on projects, programs, knowledge management and other operational policy matters. The Finance and Human Resources Committee examines financial and human resources matters while the Audit and Risk Committee ensures that the Foundation's risk management tools are up to date at any given time.

Secretariat: The Secretariat administers the Foundation, in accordance with the policies and guidelines set out by the Boards. Headed by an Executive Secretary, the Secretariat currently has staff members from 23 African countries, both in the professional and support categories.

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 , ,

The recognition of ACBF as the African Union’s Specializes 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 , ,

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 – Minister of Finance, Ghana , ,

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


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

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