AfDB’S Integrated Safeguards System - Policy Statement and Operational Safeguards
Safeguards are powerful tools that help analysts to identify risk, help to reduce development costs and improve sustainability for projects. Because sustainable development is important to the Bank and its members, especially protecting livelihoods and the environment, safeguards play a critical role in sustainable development. In December 2013 the Bank unanimously adopted the Integrated Safeguards System (ISS), which is the cornerstone of its strategy to promote growth that is socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable. This, in turn, fully supports the Bank’s Ten Year Strategy 2013-2022.
The ISS promotes best practices and also encourages greater transparency and accountability. It provides a process for the people, especially the most vulnerable communities, to express their views by providing project-level grievance and redress mechanisms.
The Bank’s ISS has been developed through extensive consultations. In particular, five regional workshops—in Nairobi, Lusaka, Libreville, Abuja and Rabat—provided the Bank with an opportunity to listen to and address concerns raised by various stakeholders, including civil society.
“Integrated Safeguards System” is the first publication in our series on Safeguards and Sustainability.

AfDB Group Energy Sector Policy
The Energy Sector Policy of the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) provides a general framework for the Bank’s operations in the energy sector. The Policy is still under preparation and has built on the Bank Group’s experience, extensive internal and external consultations and analysis of the key issues of concern in the African energy sector. The new Energy Sector Policy replaces the 1994 Energy Policy and constitutes the Bank’s response to the challenge of low access to modern energy services in Africa. It also better reconciles access and sustainability objectives, namely by addressing the emerging energy-related challenges posed by climate change. Consequently, the policy framework advances a dual objective: * support RMCs in their efforts to provide all their populations and productive sectors with access to modern, affordable and reliable energy services; and * assist RMCs in developing their energy sector in a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable manner.Read more
