Impact statement:

Strengthened capacity of pan-African organisations and African governments to increase domestic resource mobilisation through informed policymaking.

Key objectives

The rationale for launching the African-Finnish Partnerships on Taxation Capacity in Africa Programme (AFP-TCA) stems from Finland’s Taxation for Development Action Programme (2020-2023). The Programme aims at supporting domestic resource mobilisation and thus contributes to the Action Programme’s two of the three main pillars: “to strengthen the taxation capacity of developing countries” and “to strengthen the position of developing countries in the global tax policy and ensure that the perspectives of developing countries will be better taken into consideration in the international tax policy”. This goal is the rationale for supporting taxation policy design by increasing research, training and education on taxation.

The key approaches of the Programme include capacity development, enhanced use of new and agile leadership competencies and digital learning, mutual research and policymaking.
