  1. Background

The AfDB’s Ten Year Strategy (TYS) – At the Center of Africa’s Transformation (2013 – 2022), highlights gender as one of the three areas of special emphasis, in addition to improving inclusive growth as one of its two main objectives. The AfDB’s vision in the TYS encourages Africa to address gender-based disparities in voice and agency, education, economic activities, earnings and GBV to “capture the demographic dividend of its young population and the energies of its women.” In 2016, the AfDB launched its High 5s, a game changer in Africa’s development discourse to align the Bank’s TYS and actions with international development trends, in particular to the SDGs and African Union Agenda 2063. While cross-cutting, the last goal “Improve the Quality of Life for the People of Africa” was designed to facilitate deliberate efforts to empower women and civil society and support human capital to focus on public health infrastructure systems, nutrition, youth and skills development, and water and sanitation. Building up to the TYS, and in support of gender agenda, since 2001, four framework documents have guided Gender Mainstreaming (GM) at the African Development Bank Group: AfDB’s 2001 Gender Policy; AfDB’s Updated Gender Plan of Action (UGPOA) (2009-2011) which followed the Gender Plan of Action (2004-2009); AfDB’s Gender Strategy ‘Investing in Gender Equality for Africa’s Transformation’ (2014-2018); and A Plan of Action for Operationalizing Gender Mainstreaming (2014) intended to facilitate GS implementation through five sets of actions. The Bank set up a Gender, Women and Civil Society Department (AHGC) in 2017 under the Agriculture, Human and Social Development Vice-Presidency (AHVP). Across the strategic priorities, the Bank has made strides in integrating gender across its operations, knowledge work and policy dialogue, including as a cross-cutting theme together with governance, fragility, climate change, and jobs for youth.

In 2017, the Gender department commissioned the Gender Strategy to a Mid-Term Review (MTR). The review examined the implementation of the Bank’s Gender Strategy from January 2014 through December 2016. In February 2019, the Board of Directors approved the BDEV 2019-2021 Work Program which included an update on the evaluation synthesis of gender equality mainstreaming that BDEV undertook in 2012. In this evaluation exercise, BDEV complemented external learning with significant analysis of the existing evidence on the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, catalytic effect and sustainability, and learning about gender mainstreaming at the AfDB.

Following the expiry of the 2014 – 2018 strategy, the Bank is preparing a new Gender Strategy (GS) for the period 2021 – 2025 to inform its approach to mainstreaming gender in all its lending and non-operations, and internally as a gender-responsive institution. In doing so, the Bank is building on insights from the 2017 Mid-term review and the BDEV synthesis evaluation.
