PREPARATION FACILITY (PPF) OF THE AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT FUND (ADF).

Background :

  1. . The Project Preparation Facility (PPF) of the African Development Fund (ADF) was established in 2000 to “enhance the quality of project preparation and provide an effective mechanism for prompt response to the project preparatory needs of borrowers from the Fund”. It was intended to serve as a fast-disbursing facility that could be easily/quickly accessed by eligible Regional Member Countries (RMCs) of the Bank Group and was designed as a revolving and self-sustaining fund to provide advances to finance project preparation in ADF countries ;
  2.  The ADF PPF is accessible only to countries in categories A (ADF resources only) and B (ADF and AfDB resources, blend countries) in conformity with the Bank’s credit policy. All PPF advances are subject to reimbursement, regardless of the recipient country’s financing terms related to its debt sustainability status (loan/grant). Requests for the utilization of PPF resources in principle originate from the national Government. In the case of multinational projects, the request can emanate from the Government(s) of one or more of the participating countries or from the Regional Economic Community (REC) ;
  3. The PPF continues to remain relevant in providing resources to cover the preparatory phase of national projects in ADF countries, in complement to other Bank Group instruments.
