Third ADF-13 Replenishment Meeting - The AfDB Group’s Role in Policy Dialogue with ADF Countries


Sustained policy dialogue is an essential part of the African Development Bank Group’s (AfDB) engagement with its Regional Member Countries (RMCs). It contributes towards meeting the objectives of the Bank Group’s Strategy 2013-2022 to support more inclusive and sustainable growth across the continent. This Note provides an overview of the important role of the AfDB, as an African institution, in policy dialogue, along with concrete examples of how the organization has taken an active role, engaging with RMC governments and other stakeholders on key policy areas critical for the continent’s economic and social transformation. This note is not intended to provide an exhaustive presentation on the many areas and levels covered through policy dialogue, but rather give an indication of how it is a critical part of the Bank’s work. It provides information on what the Bank is doing to position itself to better harness the opportunities and to tackle important issues in the region through effective and active policy dialogue.
