AfDB Human Capital Strategy for Africa 2014-2018


The Human Capital Strategy2014–2018 reflects the efforts of a diverse group of experts both inside and outside the African Development Bank. The report was prepared by the African Development Bank Group’s Human Development Department (OSHD). It reflects inputs from staff across many departments, including Agriculture and Agro-Industries (OSAN), Development Research (EDRE), NEPAD and Regional Integration and Trade (ONRI), Private Sector Operations (OPSM), Operation Resources and Policy (ORPC), Water and Sanitation (OWAS), Strategy (STRG) and Quality Assurance and Results (ORQR), as well as the Fragile States Unit (OSFU). The report benefited from inputs and comments from a wide array of consultations with government officials from regional member countries, development partners, the private sector, think tanks, regional economic communities, academia, youth, civil society, nongovernmental organizations and the African diaspora. Consultations with several African Ministers of Finance and Health and Ministers of Education, Science and Technology greatly enriched this strategy.
