ADF @ 50 : African Development Fund Golden Jubilee
As the ADF turns 50 in 2022, it is time to celebrate its achievements and paint its future to meet the evolving needs of African countries. ADF operations have changed the lives of millions of Africans, making it a trusted and strategic partner for all its stakeholders. To date, six countries have graduated from ADF and another five can now access the Fund as well as the Bank resources.
The Event is designed as a celebratory and open event. Participants will include beneficiaries, donors, and others attending the Bank Group’s Annual Meetings (AM). It will celebrate the achievements of the Fund so far and, at the same time, reflect on the way forward.
Beneficiaries, attending either in person or through video recordings, will share how ADF projects have impacted and changed their lives. ADF achievements will be shwocased through visual aids (both physical and virtual) before, during and after the event.
