6th Africa Think Tank Summit

The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) convened its Sixth Africa Think Tank Summit 24-26 April 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya, under the theme “Tackling Implementation Challenges for Africa’s Sustainable Development”. The Summit was organized in partnership with the Government of Kenya and the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA).
The main objective of the 2019 Summit, the sixth in the series, was to provide a better understanding of why policies and programs are not effectively implemented in many African countries, and offer recommendations for enhancing implementation to achieve desirable development outcomes.
According to an ACBF August 2013 study titled, “The Digest of OAU-AU Treaties, Conventions and Agreement 1963 to 2014”, about 42 treaties/agreements were signed by the OAU and its successor the AU between 1963 and 2014, but only 25 had been ratified by 2014. Even then there was little implementation on any of them.
