The AfDB says it conducts external consultations to ensure that the specific needs and expectations of its clients are well understood and taken into account.
The African Development Bank (AfDB) is starting the process of preparing its new Ten-Year Strategy (SD 2023-2032). The draft roadmap should provide a vision for the Bank on how it can build on its achievements of the past decade to accelerate Africa’s inclusive, green and resilient growth and development. As part of the formulation of this new strategy, the Bank claims to conduct external consultations to ensure that the specific needs and expectations of its clients are well understood and taken into account. The consultations will also provide an opportunity for various parties to bring different perspectives to shape the continent’s transformation strategy.
They will also provide an opportunity to deepen existing partnerships and forge new ones, as the continent expects to face an unprecedented set of challenges in the coming decade. An online survey was thus designed with the aim of providing “valuable” information to a wide range of stakeholders. This should enable it to define the strategic orientations and the critical paths for the next decade. Target respondents are multilateral development banks, the private sector, applied civil society organizations, academic and research institutions.
