Funders

The African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) is supported by donor governments, multilateral organizations, private foundations and international organizations. Representatives of some of these bodies form the Board of Directors, which is AERC’s apex governance body. The AERC Board is a mixed body of 5–18 directors appointed by donor organizations (institutional directors) and others (directors-at-large) appointed in their personal capacity on account of the expertise needed for the proper functioning of the Board. The Executive Director of AERC is an ex-officio member of the Board with vote. The Chair of the Programme Committee is an ex officio member without vote. The Board is responsible for setting broad policy, providing support for a multi-year programme of activities, and approving the annual programme of work and budget.
