Project General Description

The project aims to support the African Community of Practice for Managing for Development Results (AfCoP to mainstream results-based practices of Managing for Development Results (MfDR) into the policies and strategies of RMCs and RECs. The project responds to the Bank’s commitment to support the development effectiveness global agenda. The Busan declaration of the High-Level forum on aid effectiveness held in South Korea (29 November-1 December 2011) recognizes the regional dimension of development effectiveness and the role of the RECs in that regard. It will enhance the capacity of the Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and their member countries to facilitate the implementation of regional policies and programs by using MfDR approaches, and thereby promote regional integration. The project will support the African Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results (AfCoP) in order to build African capacity on MfDR and will contribute to promoting political leadership for results, strengthening regional and national capacities and systems, and engaging non-state actors to hold policy makers accountable for results in the RECs and their member states. The total cost is UA 09.98 million over a three-year period.

Project Objectives

The expected outcomes are: to improve the effectiveness in implementing the regional policies in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and in their member states; to improve the result orientation of the policies, the programs and the projects of the above selected RECs; and to strengthen the MfDR capacity of WAEMU and COMESA and their member states.


The direct beneficiaries of the project will be COMESA and WAEMU and their member states. It will target AfCoP members, including public sector officials and experts, civil society, the private sector, parliamentarians, local consultants, the media and academics. The COMESA and WAEMU countries will be covered by Components 2 and 3 of the project, with intensive capacity-building activities. It is expected that 15 000 people will be trained. The priority for the training sessions will be given to the regional integration-related institutions. At least one-third of participants in the training sessions will be women and at least 10% will be young people from active women’s and youth associations in the development field. In the COMESA region in particular, the project will also benefit the Federation of National Associations of Women in Business for knowledge and experience sharing on promoting trade facilitation. The indirect beneficiaries will be AfCoP members in the non-COMESA and -WAEMU member countries (see the map in Appendix IV). They will benefit from knowledge sharing from the online platform.
