Mission & Objective

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.

In 2000, all multilateral development institutions have agreed on a same set of objectives, called the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). They are:

Millennium Development Goals

  • Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
  • Improve maternal health
  • Achieve universal primary education
  • Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
  • Promote gender equality and empower women
  • Ensure environmental sustainability
  • Reduce child mortality
  • Develop a global partnership for development

J'approuve les orientations globales de la BAD, et je pense qu'il faudrait aussi inclure un environnement visant a réduire les fuites des cerveaux et a favoriser le retour des expérimentés de la diaspora.

I consider very interesting both the two Bank Group objectives and the eight Millennium Development Goals. Also the grammar, accents and language distribution of words appears to be correctly written, even if translated to anyone of the thousands of african tribes ´ specific languages....So congratulations for your brilliant and measurables objectives which are the proud of not only african citizens but also beyond Africa, and beyond the imagination of Africans.
