  1. Introduction and background :

The African Development Bank is the premier pan-African development institution, promoting economic growth and social progress across the continent. The Bank’s development agenda entails delivering financial and technical support to transformative projects that will significantly reduce poverty through inclusive and sustainable economic growth. In order to sharply focus the objectives of the Ten Year Strategy (2013 – 2022) and ensure greater developmental impact, five major areas of focus (High 5), all of which will accelerate our delivery for Africa, have been identified for scaling up, namely; light up and power Africa (energy), feed Africa (agriculture and nutrition), industrialize Africa (industrialization), integrate Africa (regional integration and intra-regional trade) and improve the quality of life for Africans (sustainable socio-economic development).

The Chief Economist/Vice-President for Economic Governance and Knowledge Management (ECVP) is responsible for (i) providing leadership and visibility for the Bank on economic, finance, financial governance and socio economic development issues; and coordinate the 1 generation of analytical work to inform operational policy; and (ii) systematically emphasize the critical role of knowledge, experience, lessons learnt and their tangible impact on sustainable, inclusive transformation of African economies.

The Macroeconomics Policy, Forecasting and Research Department (ECMR) is dedicated to the generation of high quality knowledge in the area of development in Africa. ECMR comprises 2 divisions, one of which is the Microeconomics, Institutional and Development Impact Division (ECMR.2) which focuses on microeconomic issues related to development finance, infrastructure development, private sector development, industrial organizations, governance, competitiveness & investment climate, agriculture, institutions, and regional integration to support the High 5s. In addition, the Microeconomic, Institutional and Development Impact Division is the institutional anchor of the ex-ante Additionality and Development Outcome Assessment (ADOA) of the Bank’s operations. As such, it is a key element of the Bank Results Framework and the primary tool for mainstreaming Development Outcomes.

ECMR.2 also undertakes research and knowledge generation activities to inform its additionality and development outcomes assessments and more broadly the Bank’s operations. These activities cover a wide range of areas that are relevant to the Bank’s High 5 priorities. For instance, ECMR.2 coordinates the Africa Long-Term Finance (LTF) Initiative which is a joint initiative of the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Financial Sector Deepening Trust for Africa (FSDA), the German Cooperation (BMZ, implemented by GIZ), and the Making Finance Work for Africa (MFW4A) Partnership. The Division is also undertaking research work in trade finance, including the implementation of continent-wide survey of commercial banks.
