The African Development Bank (AfDB) has launched a Web consultation on its new Governance Strategy for 2014-2018 aimed at receiving feedback from all its stakeholders on their expectations on the Bank’s future governance interventions.
“The vision of AfDB is that Africa is governed by transparent, accountable and responsive governments with strong institutions that are capable of driving inclusive and sustainable growth,” said Lobe Ndoumbe, Governance and Financial Management Director, at the launch of the web consultation.
AfDB’s new Governance Strategy is based on the AfDB Group’s Strategy for 2013-2022in which governance and accountability are among the core operational priorities, to be mainstreamed across the Bank.
Through its web consultation, AfDB seeks to inform all stakeholders on its proposed governance strategic directions for 2014-2018 and to receive feedback on their expectations on its future governance interventions.
“We welcome feedback on whether our Governance Strategic Direction and Action Plan for 2014-2018 (GAP II) identifies the key governance challenges confronting Africa and whether the three proposed strategic pillars and associated operational activities will be adequate to address them,” said Patricia Laverley, GAP II task manager.
Moreover, the AfDB Group encourages stakeholders to suggest ways in which GAP II can better complement and reinforce the governance work of other development partners in Africa and how they can work together to leverage additional resources for the continent’s development. Read more from Source
