RECs 2nd Edition

The second Capacity Survey of the Regional Economic Communities in Africa aims to reassess the capacity needs of the eight RECs in African Union (AU) member states in line with their new strategic thrusts and prospective development imperatives. It also seeks to provide strategic guidance to the key development partners of the RECs on strategic programming. The study recognizes the need for efficient RECs as coordinating and facilitating institutions, with capacities strong enough to drive the regional integration agenda.
