The African Development Bank remains optimistic about the continent's prospects. Africa is dynamic and resilient. In Part 1 of the report, we examine the factors that have built that resilience, the obstacles that persist and the policy actions required to overcome those obstacles.
Now, more than ever, the Bank is committed to pursuing its objectives of ensuring that Africa achieves inclusive growth and helping it make the transition to green growth, in line with the overarching priorities of our Ten Year Strategy.
In this part of the report we focus on five critical areas of the Ten Year Strategy, 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. In each of the five chapters we examine Africa's progress and challenges (Level 1) and the Bank's contribution (Level 2) in these key areas.
This part uses 32 indicators from Level 1 of the One Bank Results Measurement Framework to show performance in 2015, with traffic light symbols to indicate how African countries have progressed compared with other developing countries.
We also report on the Bank's contribution to Africa's development in the period 2013-15, using 36 indicators from Level 2 of the same framework. Traffic light symbols show whether we reached or fell short of our targets. In addition, this part sets out some of our plans and targets for the next three years.
