Africa's Capacity Development Strategic Framework


The African continent has adopted a continent-wide strategy on capacity development – the AU NEPAD Capacity Development Strategic Framework (CDSF) by decision of the 14th African Union Assembly of February 2010. The CDSF is built on six strategic cornerstones (Transformative Leadership; Citizen Empowerment; Utilising Africa Potential, Skills and Resources; Evidence-based Knowledge and Innovation; Capacity of Capacity Developers; and Integrated Planning and Implementation for Results) which are capacity development priorities as defined by Africans.
