African Development Bank’s 2016 Annual report for North Africa - Addressing Together the Bank’s High 5 for transforming North Africa
Since 2015 and to accelerate Africa’s transformation, the African Development Bank is committed to focus its efforts on five priority areas: Lighting Africa, Feeding Africa, Integrating Africa, Industrializing Africa and improving the quality of life for the people of Africa. These new priorities perfectly meet the challenges facing North Africa to ensure a more inclusive development as highlighted by the social demands observed in several countries of the region since 2011.
This annual report presents for each country and for each Bank financed-project, how the institution supports North Africa to meet these five priorities.
Moreover, the report presents in the thematic section progress but also short and medium term issues and challenges that countries face and which influence the progresses made in achieving the objectives of the five priorities set by the Bank.
