The first chapter is devoted primarily to Africa’s capacity development landscape. It focuses on the Africa Capacity Indicators and the Africa Capacity Index. This year’s annual theme of key importanceto Africa’s development agenda focuses on the capacity development challenges in domestic resource mobilization.
