HARARE, (CAJ News) – STAKEHOLDERS from government and private sector will converge in Harare, Zimbabwe next month for the third Capacity Development Forum (CDF3) to mark 25 years of capacity building in Africa.

Policymakers, senior government officials, representatives from multilateral and bilateral institutions, private sector and civil society delegates and the media will convene at the Harare International Conference Centre to discuss the various capacity dimensions of Agenda 2063.

These dimensions include private sector development and partnerships as key tools for Africa’s economic and social transformation.

Through a series of interactive plenary sessions and side events, then forum will explore the major challenges and opportunities associated with capacity development on the continent, including youth employment, public,
private and civil society engagement and domestic resource mobilisation.

Chair of the ACBF Executive Board, Prof. Callisto Madavo, said the 25th anniversary presents us an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate the capacity building milestones achieved over the years.

“Through CDF3 we hope to analyse and devise ways to address the critical capacity development challenges, proposing practical solutions to financing capacity building efforts in Africa in support of implementing Agenda 2063 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” said Madavo.

“Ultimately, our goal is to achieve a ‘structural transformation’ of  African institutions by facilitating knowledge-sharing and experiences on capacity development and securing long-term commitments to capacity development initiatives,” added Madavo.

Zimbabwe has hosted the ACBF headquarters since inception.
