Background

The Bank

Established in 1964, the African Development Bank is the premier pan-African development institution, promoting economic growth and social progress across the continent. There are 80 member states, including 54 in Africa (Regional Member Countries). The Bank’s development agenda is delivering the financial and technical support for 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, all of which will accelerate our delivery for Africa have been identified for scaling up, namely; energy, agro-business, industrialization, integration and improving the quality of life for the people of Africa. The Bank is seeking to build a management team that will lead the successful implementation of this vision.

The Complex

The Vice Presidency for ‘Agriculture, Human, and Social Development’ (AHVP) is a Sector Complex charged with the implementation of two of the Bank’s High 5 priorities of “Feed Africa” and “Improve Quality of Life for the People of Africa”. The complex objectives are fourfold: to develop, policy and strategy; to provide deep sector expertise to the Regions by gathering pools of experienced individuals who can be consulted to provide sector expertise on complex transactions and to develop new financing instruments. The Vice President acts as the spokesperson to represent the Bank with external stakeholders on aspects of “Feed Africa” and Improve Quality of Life for the People of Africa”.

The complex has departments which implement its operational and strategic programs. They include Agriculture and Agro-Industry; Agricultural Finance and Rural Development; Gender, Women and Civil Society; Water Development and Sanitation; and Human Capital, Youth and Skills Development. Each department is led by a Director who supervises a number of Division Managers and Program Coordinators. The Complex will drive the Bank’ bold vision and focus on “Feed Africa and Improve Life in Africa”.

Approach to program implementation

The Bank is currently implementing a Development and Business Delivery Model (DBDM) through which it has created 5 regional Business Development Hubs each led by a Director General – Tunis for North Africa, Nairobi for Eastern Africa, Pretoria for Southern Africa, Yaoundé for Central Africa and Abidjan for West Africa. The Bank also has presence in 41 countries each led by a Country Manager. Both the Director General and Country Managers are responsible for leading country level dialogue and work closely with the AHVP complex to determine the operational lending program.

The AHVP lending programs under Feed Africa and Improve the Quality of Life of the People of Africa are therefore implemented at two levels: at the AHVP complex and in the regional member countries. The complex also has a number of initiatives that cut across the entire institution. Examples include Gender mainstreaming and jobs for African youth. AHVP provides technical and operational support to mainstream these initiatives in all Bank operations. Each department in the complex has specific roles and responsibilities. Agriculture and Agro-Industry is responsible for the public sector agricultural lending program while the Agricultural Finance and Rural Development is responsible for agricultural private sector lending program. The Gender, Women and Civil Society provides cross cutting support to all Bank operations in mainstreaming gender and support to civil society. The Water Development and Sanitation supports investments in the water sector and Human Capital, Youth and Skills Development supports programs in health, education and skills development.

The implementation lending programs are led by either the AHVP complex or the Regional Hubs and/or the Country Offices. This include business origination, project preparation, negotiation, implementation and portfolio management.
