    Introduction:

    The Centre for Policy Analysis (CEPA) was incorporated in January 1993 under Ghana’s Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179) as an independent, non-profit and non-governmental think-tank, which provides analysis and perspectives on economic policy issues of Ghana and the developing world.  ACBF funded the establishment of CEPA and has supported the centre since 1993. 

    Project Description:

    The objectives for CEPA were to

    a)    provide alternative policy options to policy makers and other stakeholders through research;

    b)    Enhance capacities of other institutions in Ghana through training, networking and internships;

    c)    Increase economic information dissemination to raise public awareness of economic development issues.

    d)    Enhance institutional capacity in order to respond to the changing domestic and international environment.

ACBF has been granted the status of a specialized agency because of the potential to transform Africa through capacity development.

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.


H.E. Erastus Mwencha, Chair, ACBF Executive Board
Lamin Momodou

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.


Mr. Lamin Momodou MANNEH, Director, UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa
Goodall Gondwe

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


Hon. Goodall Gondwe, former Chair of the ACBF Board of Governors and Minister of Finance – Malawi
Ken Ofori Atta

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.


Hon Ken Ofori Atta, Chair of the ACBF Board of Governors and Minister of Finance - Ghana
