AfDB African Development Bank
The African Development Bank is the Group's parent organization. The overarching AfDB Group is to spur sustainable economic development and social progress in its regional member countries, thus contributing to poverty reduction.
The Bank Group achieves this objective by mobilizing and allocating resources for investment in its countries, and providing policy advice and technical assistance to support development efforts.
In 2000, all multilateral development institutions have agreed on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG).
