Harare will host third Capacity Development Forum in May 2016

The third Capacity Development Forum (CDF) will take place in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare from 2 to 6 May 2016.

The conference will this year discuss the “developing capacity for Africa’s economic and social transformation,” and 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,” according to a press release.

The Capacity Development Forum will also host the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) 25th Anniversary Celebrations. The organisations headquarters has been stationed in Zimbabwe since its inception in 1991.

“We are delighted to welcome several Pan-African organisations, business leaders, non-governmental actors, public sector representatives and parliamentarians as well as representatives of academia and our partners from the multilateral and bilateral development agencies to this important event,” noted ACBF executive secretary Prof. Emmanuel Nnadozie.

More information about the event can be found on the ACBF’s official website.
