Partnership overview

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.

The Belgian development policy is based on several priorities : food security, education and training, governance, fragile states and private sector development.
