The Mid-Year Review of the Bank Group Capacity Development Strategy approved on 13 January 2010 was submitted to the Board of Directors of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group, on Wednesday, 18 September 2013 in Tunis, for its due consideration and appreciation.
Making the presentation to the Board, the director of the African Development Institute (EADI), Mr. Victor Murinde, observed that during the period 2010-2012, EADI and the partner departments in the Bank were jointly engaged in getting the necessary structures and systems in place. These according to him included creating strategic partnerships with local universities, regional capacity development institutions such as the African Capacity Building Foundation, the African Economic Research Consortium, as well as working with relevant multilateral institutions such as the World Bank, IMF, and World Trade Organization. Mr. Murinde highlighted the following five main achievements under the Capacity Development Strategy:
“Given that the Capacity Development strategy cuts across two bank strategies, namely the mid- term strategy (MTS) and the 10 Year strategy (TYS), we request the board to take note that, going forward, the Capacity Development strategy will be re-aligned with the Ten Year strategy for full implementation until end of 2014, in order to capture lessons learned, which will be reported in the Final Review Report in December 2014,” Mr. Murinde concluded. The Board took note that a new Capacity Development strategy will be designed, in 2014 drawing on the TYS.
Director Murinde was accompanied by the Bank’s Capacity Building Team comprising Mrs. Bernadette Kamgnia Manager EADI.2, Mrs. Awuese Oku Chief Learning Officer CHRM as well as Messrs Oliver Chinganya Manager (ESTA) and Boukary Savadogo Manager (OSHD.1) .
