African Center for Economic Transformation

For General Operating Support

Strategies
Overview
The African Center for Economic Transformation provides research, policy advice, and capacity enhancements that African countries can use to transform their economies, reduce poverty, and improve living standards. It combines original research about the drivers of economic growth with advisory services to African governments on institutional arrangements and policy approaches to achieve economic growth goals. This grant would support the Center at an important time, as it moves from the inaugural edition of its flagship African Transformation Report and African Transformation Index into a sustained work program anchored on the themes of this report. In this grant period, the Center aims to further professionalize its communications and fundraising functions.
