Infrastructure, Cities and Urban Development Department - Annual Report 2016
In 2016 the Bank continued its long standing support for the development of transport and ICT infrastructure in Africa. By supporting industrialization with seamless movements along value chains, promoting the integration of Africa’s markets, and playing a catalytic role in unlocking Africa’s immense agricultural potential, transport and ICT infrastructure are critical for the achievement of the High-5s. Transport contributes as well to improving the quality of people’s lives by providing safe and efficient access to socio-economic services and employment opportunities. The 2016 lending program successfully delivered support to the Bank Development Strategies amidst an evolving business environment.
