The African Development Bank (the Bank or AfDB) established in 1964 is the leading development bank on the continent with a mission and objective to spur sustainable economic development and social progress in its Regional Member Countries (RMCs), thus contributing to poverty reduction. The Bank’s Triple-A rating across major rating agencies enables it to mobilize and allocate resources for investment in Africa while providing policy advice and technical assistance to support development efforts. To accelerate Africa’s transformation, the Bank has identified five operational priority areas. These five priorities are: (i) Light Up & Power Africa; (ii) Feed Africa; (iii) Industrialize Africa; (iv) Integrate Africa; and (v) Improve the quality of life for the people of Africa (collectively, the High 5s). The High 5s will help Africa achieve 90% of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and are intrinsically linked to the African Union’s Agenda 2063.
