Disclosure and Access to Information Policy
The mandate of the African Development Bank (AfDB or the "Bank") and its related entities (collectively the "Bank Group") is focused on the sustainable economic development and social progress of the African member countries of the Bank Group. The Bank Group’s Policy on Disclosure and Access to Information (the "DAI Policy") provides the primary channel for achieving the above-mentioned objectives. The DAI Policy was adopted by the Bank Group Boards of Directors in May 2012, and became effective in February 2013.
Openness and transparency are key principles of the policy. 'Openness' reflects our willingness and availability to engage with stakeholders, and the provision of effective platforms and instruments for such engagement.
