We are the ADRECI...
... an independent think-and-do tank championing sustainable Afrocentric solution to Africa’s intractable problems. Our vision (of a sustainable, prosperous and peaceful Africa) is focused on overcoming poverty and inequality, promoting sustainability, and addressing violent conflicts and fragility in Africa. We believe these are perhaps Africa’s most important challenges of the 21st century, and since they are critically interlinked, we must deal with them together or else failure in one adversely affects progress in the others. We endeavour to find the best tools and approaches to unlock Africa’s potential and accelerate sustainable development, resilience and peace. Our mission therefore entails building tailored solutions and evidence to support local priorities and effective decision-making.Explore More
