The cost of developing the Africa Peace Centre is estimated to be US$40-million. Once operational the centre is estimated to yield a surplus. Revenues will be derived from three major sources:
- from the use of the conference venue;
- from the associated use of accommodation facilities; and
- from the dining facilities.
In each case these revenues result from the Centre’s training and intervention programme activities. As the Centre will remain a not-for-profit entity, all surplus income will be invested in a Rapid Response Fund which will afford the organisation the opportunity for proactive intervention in African conflict situations.
