Enhancing Africa’s Development: A Fresh Approach to Financial Support

The African Development Bank Group has introduced a new Ten-Year Strategy 2024–2033 to enhance financing of Africa’s development agenda. The strategy aims to address pressing challenges and boost economic growth on the continent.

During the launch of the strategy at the Bank Group’s Annual Meetings in Nairobi, President Akinwumi Adesina emphasized the importance of supporting African countries in the next decade. He highlighted the need to accelerate growth in the face of economic challenges.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and political instability has affected Africa’s development. The strategy focuses on driving green growth and building prosperous and resilient economies in the region.

Key priorities include promoting energy access, ensuring food security, and fostering regional integration. Gender equality, climate action, and good governance are also important areas of focus.

The strategy emphasizes the role of the private sector in driving Africa’s growth. The Bank plans to triple private-sector finance by 2033 and explore innovative financing mechanisms to support the continent’s development.

Investing in women and youth, addressing climate change, and enhancing governance are key components of the strategy. The Bank aims to drive economic growth and resilience in Africa over the next decade.

Despite challenges, African economies are projected to remain resilient with growth rates expected to increase. The continent is poised for growth, with East Africa, Southern Africa, and West Africa leading the way.

This new strategy sets out a vision for a prosperous, inclusive, and integrated Africa. The Bank is committed to supporting African countries in navigating challenges and driving economic growth in the region.
