What We Do
The ACSD focus is on facilitating exchange of information on interventions, initiatives and best practices on
- Climate change
- Food security
- Access to water
- Clean energy generation
- The achievement of SDGs in African Countries
The objective is to increase synergies and complementarities between activities, learn from earlier activities and to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of donor resources. The goal is to contribute and accelerate Sustainable Development on the African Continent.
Through the Centre the partners want to encourage the increase of effectiveness, of the synergies and complementarity of the initiatives in progress in support of Africa, and at the same time have the opportunity to better listen to the needs and priorities of our African partners.
