Abstract

African think tanks have the potential to provide much-needed localized expertise that can infuse policy debates with rigorous evidence-based data and an authentic African perspective. By focusing on examples of African think tanks that are succeeding, African think tanks can come together to collaborate and create a unified African voice, whereby showing donors how crucial they are to the success of their respective countries and increase support for the fragile African think tank ecosystem. As a think tank community, we must work to ensure that African think tanks have the tools to thrive, prosper and grow.
