ADC is a subsidiary of the ACCORD Group. The Group takes its name from the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD).

ACCORD is a specialist, non-profit, peace and security organisation that has been operating in Africa for the past 25 years. From SADC in the South, through the Great Lakes region to the Horn of Africa and in West Africa, ACCORD is recognized for its peacebuilding, conflict management, conflict analysis and conflict prevention [see www.accord.org.za].

The ACCORD Group recognises that Africa is one of the fastest growing regions in the world. It also recognises that Africa needs to safeguard, support and sustain this growth.

Whereas ACCORD works to establish and maintain conditions of peace, the work of ACCORD Development Consulting [ADC] is focussed on the development of state, institutional, and stakeholder capacity and stability, so as to ensure sustainable growth and socio-economic transformation.
