2010 - Zimbabwe - Country Brief
This Country Brief for Zimbabwe serves as an update to the Board of Directors on developments in Zimbabwe since the Short-Term Strategy - Concept Note (STS) was discussed by the Board informally in May 2009. This programming document outlines the Bank’s short term priority areas of intervention and proposed activities. At the request of Zimbabwe’s Inclusive Government (IG), and with the support of the international community, the African Development Bank (AfDB) has been requested to play a lead role in assisting and supporting the country’s economic recovery. The AfDB also is expected to provide leadership and promote viable options for Zimbabwe's re-engagement with the international community and private investors. This coincides with the Bank’s efforts to devise a broad and coordinated approach to engaging more effectively with fragile states.
