Bank Group Results Measurement Framework

The African Development Bank Group’s Results Measurement Framework for the period 2016-2025 is designed to measure and enhance development impact. The RMF uses four levels to track the Bank’s performance in meeting its development objectives. Level 1 tracks development progress across Africa. Level 2 measures the Bank’s contributions towards development in all its operations. Level 3 assesses the quality of the Bank’s operations, and Level 4 monitors the Bank’s efficiency as an organisation. With this RMF, the Bank is increasing its strategic focus on five priority areas of development, the “High 5s”: light up and power Africa, feed Africa, industrialise Africa, integrate Africa and improve the quality of life for the people of Africa. The Bank is also adopting a new Development Business Delivery Model (DBDM) to increase its effectiveness and efficiency. Altogether the RMF identifies 14 objectives for the Bank which summarise the theory of change that guides the Bank’s actions and underpins the RMF. This edition of the Results Measurement Framework represents a significant commitment not only to improving the way the Bank measures its results and its performance, but also to deepening the Bank’s impact and understanding.
