Addressing Fragility and Building Resilience in Africa- The AfDB Group Strategy 2014–2019


This document presents the African Development Bank Group (the Bank) Strategy for Addressing Fragility and Building Resilience in its regional member countries for the period 2014–2019. Anchored in the Bank’s Ten Year Strategy (2013–2022), it builds on and replaces the 2008 Strategy for Enhanced Engagement in Fragile States, taking into account lessons learned during its implementation and the recommendations of OPEV’s evaluation. It also reflects the evolving international consensus on partnership modalities for addressing fragility as expressed in the New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States, and the findings and recommendations of the High Level Panel on Fragile States. It is a Bank-wide strategy, to be implemented by all departments, with the support of the Fragile States Department (ORFS) [renamed Transition Support Department (ORTS)]. This revised document incorporates comments from the Committee for Development Effectiveness (CODE) and draws on the discussion of the report of the High Level Panel on Fragile States by former and present Heads of State and Bank Governors during the 2014 Annual Meetings in Kigali.
