The primary objective of this Forum was to map out best strategies and enhance capacities for improved efficiency and more visible impact of think tanks in influencing policies across Central Africa. Specifically, the Forum aimed not only to strengthen the capacities of ECCAS Think Tanks to produce relevant, high-quality research and influence policy at regional and continental levels but to establish a platform for exchange of knowledge and shared experiences between the various Think Tanks in the Central African region and also, to promote collaboration and partnerships between Think Tanks in the region and other key players, such as universities, governments and the private sector.
