ACBF Capacity Report 2015

Africa’s evolving capacity development landscape. Despite good progress since the turn of the century, capacity deficits remain a major challenge facing African countries in their quest for sustainable development. Those deficits continue to prevent them from implementing their development strategies and policies and from achieving their desired development outcomes. According to the Africa Capacity Report 2015, produced by the ACBF, weak capacity in its various dimensions is still a problem of the continent. Indeed, ACBF’s consultations with a broad cross-section of African governments, private sector, civil society, and development partners show that capacity constraints are most visible in addressing the continent’s major problems.

Domestic resource mobilization is defined as the generation of savings from domestic resources and their allocation to economically and socially productive investments as well as accounting for such allocation.
