African Development Bank (AfDB)

African Development Jobs

The overarching objective of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group is to spur sustainable economic development and social progress in its regional member countries (RMCs), thus contributing to poverty reduction.

 

 

The Bank Group achieves this objective by:

  • mobilizing and allocating resources for investment in RMCs; and
  • providing policy advice and technical assistance to support development efforts.

The African Development Bank’s Strategy for 2013–2022 reflects the aspirations of the entire African  continent. It is firmly rooted in a deep understanding and experience of how far Africa has come in  the last decade, and where it wishes to go to in the next.

Africa has embarked on a process of economic transformation. This process has seen solid and  sustained growth over a decade, but it has been uneven and without a sufficiently firm foundation, and it is not—by any estimation—complete.
