Knowledge management expert

The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) Knowledge manager

The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF), is the African Union’s Specialized Agency for Capacity Development. The establishment of ACBF in 1991 was in response to the severity of Africa’s capacity needs, and the challenges of investing in indigenous human capital and institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. ACBF interventions are premised on four principles: the centrality of capacity to the development process in Africa; the critical role of a partnership and demand driven approach in tackling capacity challenges; African ownership and leadership in the capacity development process; and a systematic, sequenced and coordinated approach to the capacity development process.
