The Civil Society Engagement and Consultations Forum, organized by the AfDB, opened on 1 March 2010, in Tunis.

Two key note addresses by Botswana’s Former President, Festus Gontebanye Mogae, and the Sudanese Pan-Africanist, Mo Ibrahim, launched the platform. The addresses were followed by remarks by AfDB President, Donald Kaberuka.

The AfDB is engaging with representatives of Civil Society Organisations (CSO) and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO).

The Civil Society Forum being held on Monday, 1 March 2010 in Tunis will be an extensive, thoughtful dialogue between the Bank and invited national African CSOs and NGO participants and networks.  

Bank speakers will describe Bank priorities in a range of areas, and the broad picture of development challenges.  CSO and NGO participants will give voice to the priorities on the ground. 

This consultative process is an invaluable part of effectively meeting global development challenges and helping to improve development outcomes in each country in Africa.

The African Development Bank is actively inviting comments and suggestions from CSOs and the broader stakeholders on its General Capital Increase exercise, the 12th Replenishment of the African Development Fund and other key areas of its work.
