The African Development Bank Group’s Independent Development Evaluation (IDEV) has just published a report evaluating more than a decade of its engagement in South Africa (2004 – 2015), principally in the finance and energy sectors. The report offers a thorough analysis of the Bank’s performance and also of the limitations of its positioning in the South African context. Across its work in finance and infrastructure, stakeholders in South Africa saw the AfDB as a financier, rather than adding value as a knowledge provider or supporter of their capacity.
