Belgium joined the African Development Fund (ADF) in 1974 and the African Development Bank (AfDB) in 1983. It supported the 2010 General Capital Increase VI and ADF-13 in 2013.
The country’s pledge to ADF-13 amounted to UA 90 million (Euros 104 million), maintaining its burden share to 2.06%.
In terms of bilateral cooperation, Belgium actively supports the African Legal Support Facility. The most recent bilateral cooperation agreement, signed in 2000, has been closed after a last contribution to the African Legal Support Facility.
