As a pan-African development institution exclusively focused on low-income countries, the ADF has a unique role in supporting economic growth and poverty reduction. Its comparative advantage lies in delivering catalytic and transformative operations in infrastructure development, regional integration, human development, private sector development, and the cross-cutting areas of fragility, gender, public sector governance and climate change. By providing predictable financing and policy advice, the ADF helps countries deliver essential public services to the most vulnerable people and communities. It has also been an important contributor to development knowledge, with an uncontested role in shaping development policies in Africa’s poorest countries.
