Résumé : La RCAA ou « Réponse à la crise alimentaire en Afrique » est le cadre conçu par la Banque pour apporter une aide rapide aux pays membres régionaux (PMR) touchés par la hausse des prix des denrées alimentaires. Les objectifs spécifiques de la RCAA sont les suivants : i) réduire la vulnérabilité des pauvres face à l’augmentation et à l’instabilité des prix des denrées alimentaires ; ii) promouvoir une croissance à large assise par une productivité agricole accrue, la participation au marché, et le renforcement des politiques des pouvoirs publics en faveur du développement durable du secteur agricole ; iii) doter les Etats de moyens suffisants leur permettant de créer un environnement favorable à une croissance agricole durable, tirée notamment par le secteur privé. Dans l’ensemble, la RCAA devrait mobiliser environ 471,97 millions d’UC à court terme, et 1,4 milliard d’UC à moyen et long termes.
Résumé : The Boards of Directors of the African Development Bank and the African Development Fund approved the Bank Group’s strategic and operational framework for regional operations during their Informal Session of 19 February 2008. This framework is intended to provide a rigorous but flexible approach to mobilize resources for regional integration in Africa. It is an important building block of the Bank Group’s broader strategy to promote regional integration, which includes advisory and analytical services, capacity building for countries and continental and regional organizations, and the use of ADB resources where appropriate. The framework is anchored in the strong consensus that greater regional integration is a key means for Africa to enhance growth and development, and address common development challenges. The Bank Group sees the financing of Regional Operations as a core element of its development mandate, and these Operations will be selective and focus primarily on two areas: (i) infrastructure, particularly transportation but also energy, water and telecommunication; and (ii) promotion of regional public goods.
Résumé : The Governance Strategic Directions and Action Plan (GAP) for 2008-2012 is the African Development Bank’s guide for the Bank’s support to regional member countries’ efforts to improve governance and fight corruption. Today the linkages between good governance and growth are better understood; as the GAP makes clear, “good governance is crucial for inclusive and sustained economic growth.” Research findings indicate that countries that improve their governance receive a 300 percent dividend – three times more income per capita in the long term. That is a huge return on investment and one we work to help countries capitalize on. The Governance Strategic Directions and Action Plan for 2008-2012 is based on the Bank Policy on Good Governance of 2000 and the lessons learned as captured in the Bank Review of Governance Activities of 2006. It also takes account of recent developments in aid policies and of guidance by Member States on future directions of the Bank’s work in governance, most notably through the Eleventh Replenishment of the African Development Fund (ADF-11). It also reflects the recommendations of the independent High Level Panel (HLP) of January 2008. Lastly, it is informed by inputs received in internal and external consultations, and by global debates on development results, aid effectiveness and donor harmonization. The Governance Strategic Directions and Action Plan will strengthen the implementation of the Bank’s governance work by providing the basis for greater strategic selectivity, defining guiding principles for delivering results and achieving impact. The ambition of the Bank is to become a partner of choice for RMCs to strengthen economic and financial governance by 2012. The criteria for the Bank’s focus in governance are: (i) selectivity and results based on the Bank’s mandate, track record, and internal capacity; (ii) country focus and ownership, tailoring Bank’s support to countries’ governance challenges, reform priorities and potential for progress, (iii) synergy and relevance, based on the need to create positive interactions with the rest of the Bank’s portfolio; and (iv) complementarity and partnership, based on the Bank’s comparative advantage and its ability to complement other donors.
Résumé : The 746th regular Session of the Board of Directors of the AfDB and the 682nd Session of the ADF Board held on 16 April 2008 approved a revised "Strategy for Higher Education, Science and Technology in Africa". The strategy aims at reforming and transforming higher education systems in Africa to energize and unlock the minds for brighter economic prospects. Science and Technology are vitally important for increasing Africa’s competitiveness. The strategy will also help in refining and providing greater focus in the implementation of the Bank’s Education Sector Policy. It will assist the Regional Member Countries (RMCs) in (i) strengthening national and regional centres of excellence in the following selected priority areas: agriculture and livestock, health sciences and health delivery support services, engineering, business enterprise, training of teachers and educational managers, water and energy; (ii) building and/or rehabilitating the existing science and technology infrastructure, including tertiary education institutions; and (iii) linking higher education, science and technology (HEST) to the productive sector
