news details

BIDPA Executive Director, Dr Tebogo Seleka, was recently elected First Vice Chair of the Policy Institutes Committee (PIC) at the Committee's Fourth Consultative Forum held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The PIC is a strategic knowledge network of the  Africa Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and brings under one umbrella all ACBF-supported think tanks and policy institutes across the continent. The Committee aims at creating a platform for mutual learning and exchange of information on Africa's policy development agenda, strategic research themes and the management of policy institutes such as BIDPA. The idea to create this Committee was born out of the acknowledgement, by policy institutes  and international development partners, of the necessity to create a dynamic and renowned community of practitioners devoted to the economic development of Africa.

The Committee is currently headed by Dr Eugenia Kayitesi, Executive Director of IPAR (Rwanda), and meets twice a year in order to foster cooperation and effective knowledge  creation, sharing and dissemination on policy development challenges faced by African countries. The BIDPA family congratulates Dr Seleka on this important milestone and notes with pride the recognition that the BIDPA has earned in the eyes of the international community.
