The African Capacity Building Initiative: Toward Improved Policy Analysis and Development Management in Sub-Saharan Africa.
World Bank, Washington, DC.
The objective of the African Capacity Building Initiative is to build and strengthen local capabilities for policy analysis and development management in Sub-Saharan Africa. This report examines the nature and magnitude of the problem, which basically consists of a shortage of development management skills combined with weakness in the area of policy formation in Sub-Saharan Africa. The report describes the African Capacity Building Initiative and presents an action program designed to meet its goals. The management and operational structure of this program, whose ultimate objective is substantially improved indigenous analysis and management of Africa's economic and development processes, is outlined.
