The Africa Portal is an online knowledge resource for policy-related issues on Africa.

We invite you to explore this newly redesigned site for the Africa Portal. It marks the first major change to the site since it was launched in November 2010 and is the result of suggestions received from our users and content partners. We trust that this redesign will assist in meeting the objective of the Africa Portal, namely to broaden the availability, accessibility and use of policy research on issues critical to the future of Africa.

The 2nd African Think Tank Summit took place at UNECA in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 6 – 8 April and was attended by over 60 African think tanks including many Africa Portal content partners.  The exhibition on the functionality of the Portal was extremely well-received by delegates, and several institutions expressed interest in joining as content partners including those from Francophone countries in West Africa.     

What is the Africa Portal?

A key feature of the Africa Portal is the online library collection, holding over 5,000 books, journals, and digital documents related to African policy issues.

All free for download.
