Belgium joined the African Development Fund (ADF) in 1974 and the African Development Bank (AfDB) in 1983.
In terms of bilateral cooperation, Belgium actively supports the African Legal Support Facility (ALSF). The most recent bilateral cooperation agreement, signed in 2000, and the associated technical assistance Trust Fund have been closed and the balance of the contribution has been transferred to the ALSF in 2010.
The Belgian development policy is based on several priorities : food security, education and training, governance, fragility and private sector development.
