Since the launch of the Pan-African Coalition for Transformation (PACT) 2016, our work has been guided by its vision. Through thematic Chapters, our objective is to provide a platform for governments and local policymakers to gain information and support as they design and implement innovative policies related to economic transformation.
2017 marked a transition to a new working model through PACT. Our objective was to launch Phase 1 Chapters (Agriculture, Extractives, Manufacturing, Resource Mobilization and Management) while initiating development of Phase II Chapters (Financial Inclusion, Regional Integration, Youth, Employment and Skills and Power & Electricity). Of these, we launched activities in three Phase I chapters and initiated analytical work in two Phase II Chapters.
We also concluded ongoing research, advisory and advocacy work, including three large multi-country and multi-year studies in agriculture, extractives and aid management. This included the launch of our second flagship report – The African Transformation Report on Agriculture.
