The African Development Bank and the Global Environment Facility - 2014 Annual Report
On a global scale, Africa is not flagged as a major emitter of the greenhouse gases. However, the continent is becoming the most exposed region in the world to the impacts of climate change. The African Development Bank (AfDB) Ten Year Strategy (2013-2022) “At the Center of Africa’s Transformation” has as its main objective improving the quality of Africa’s growth; inclusive growth, and the transition to green growth. The Bank’s strategic objectives require climate-proofing investments, so that their development achievements remain sustainable within the context of a changing climate, while reducing the vulnerability of people to climate change.
