Monitoring & Evaluation

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is a key component of ACBF’s capacity building interventions, aimed at promoting accountability and learning to achieve results. M&E is central to the development, implementation, and demonstration of results from ACBF’s capacity building grants, knowledge sharing and technical support across Africa.

The Foundation conducts independent evaluations to assess the impact of its capacity building projects and programs. The key findings and recommendations from such evaluations are used for program improvement, knowledge generation and accountability.

ACBF also provides customized, innovative, and hands-on M&E technical support to its partners to ensure efficient and effective delivery of interventions and achievement of sustainable results. Moreover, ACBF offers demand-driven M&E technical and advisory support to governments and non-state actors across Africa aimed at enhancing their capacity to develop, mainstream, and stimulate utilization of M&E information in decision making for maximum effectiveness and impact.

The recognition of ACBF as the African Union’s Specialized Agency for Capacity Development launches the beginning of a new era for capacity building by ACBF, which will require an appropriate level of political commitment and financial support from all stakeholders.

The remarkable achievements ACBF has registered over the past 26 years is not by accident in our opinion. They have come through hard work, dedication, commitment, purposeful leadership, support from the member countries as well as productive partnership building.

Africa needs ACBF as much, probably more now, than at the time it was created in 1991.

Ghana’s partnership with ACBF is a tremendous blessing for us and therefore the opportunity for Ghana to host the 26th ACBF Board of Governors Meeting is something that we treasure.
