|The year 2013 was an a typical one for African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) in many respects. The Foundation celebrated 22 years of shaping Africa's development agenda through its support of improved policymaking processes at a time when its own long term sustainability was challenged. A new way of doing business had to be adopted to balance steadily increasing demands from African countries for capacity building and a slow flow of resources due to delays in disbursements of pledges made by the Foundation's multilateral partners. For the first time, the Board of Governors (BoG) set up a permanent committee focused on resource mobilization. Operationalising this Committee remains one of the top priorities of the Foundation. Despite the challenges faced in 2013, including hard restructuring choices, I remain optimistic that 2014 will see us grow our capacity building initiatives in support of Africa's transformation drive.
