AfDB Agenda on Partnering for a Green and Inclusive Africa

The Bank will discuss its innovative approach and operational programs related to Green and Inclusive Growth in Africa with a view to providing platforms for development partners to join forces to maximize synergy and development impact on the ground.

AfDB's Partnerships Objectives

The Partnerships and Cooperation Unit is the Bank's focal point in promoting co-operation between the AfDB and external partners globally. The Unit coordinates the Bank's partnerships building and management with traditional and emerging partners, multilateral and regional development agencies, knowledge and academic institutions, as well as non-state actors. Its overall goal is to mobilize additional finance, development knowledge and global networks to leverage the Bank's own resources to meet the key development challenges in Africa.
