The African Community of Practice on Managing for Development Results (AfCoP) is a Pan-African, non-governmental and not-for-profit organization, committed to the development and promotion of a results culture in Africa to contribute to the Africa transformation agenda. It was established in 2007, in the context of the Paris Declaration, in response to the commitment of African countries to adopt the principles and practices of MfDR to create sustainable change in the lives of their populations.

AfCoP is a coalition of African leaders from all components of society engaged in a shared commitment to the philosophy of results-based development. Its members are public administration officials, parliamentarians, representatives of civil society, the private sector, academia, the media and development partners. They currently come from 43 African countries.

Beginning in 2017, AfCoP has embraced a renewed vision of becoming the leading institution and voice of Africa in the area of managing for development results. It has adopted a strategic plan for 2019-2023 which setting out a 5-year objective to become the the main repository of Managing for Development Results (MfDR) knowledge in Africa. it is envisioned that the Repository will be a proactive, creative and innovative platform in generating MfDR knowledge adapted to the socio-cultural context of the Continent; it is expected that it will be relevant for a wide variety of actors working in the development field, with an emphasis on building capacity for the implementation of results-oriented programmes to impact public policies.
