Executive Visit/Study Mission to the African Development Bank (AfDB)


Executive Visit/Study Mission to the African Development Bank (AfDB)

Program Overview

The general consensus within the development community is that African DFIs are critical partner in the implementation of development agenda in the continent. African regional and national DFIs partnering with AfDB will have important and impactful role to play in ensuring that the AfDB High 5 development projects are successfully implemented within their jurisdictions, and in the attainment of sustainable and inclusive development.

The AADFI Secretariat`s engagements with DFIs and stakeholders, showed that most DFIs, particularly national DFIs lack adequate information and or are distanced from available information on the activities of the AfDB, as well as, information on how they could be efficient partner with the Bank in implementing development agenda across the regions.

As a result, it is necessary that DFIs are properly exposed to AfDB`s operations in order to enhance partnership and collaboration in the implementation of development agenda in the regional member countries. It is against this background that the Exposure/Study mission to the Bank is being organized for DFIs and other development agencies in the continent.

The visit will provide opportunity to learn more about current operations of the Bank covering the various strategic departments and units relevant to DFIs in the implementation of development projects. Delegates will also build awareness on how to access the Bank`s funding and facilities, and how to partner with the Bank in implementing the High 5 projects in their various countries. The visit will offer opportunity for bilateral meetings with the Bank during the period with a view to enhancing mutual understanding between the Bank and other African DFIs.
