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 81 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 (High 5s), 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 Vice Presidency for ‘Agriculture, Human, and Social Development’ is a Sector Complex focusing on two of the Bank’s Ten-Year Strategy High 5s priorities of “Feed Africa” and “Improve Quality of Life for the People of Africa”. The complex objectives are (i) to develop, policy and strategy; (ii) provide deep sector expertise to the Regions by gathering pools of experienced individuals who can be consulted to provide sector expertise on complex transactions; (iii) develop new financing instruments; (iv) the Vice President will act 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 Agriculture Finance and Rural Development Department works closely with the Agriculture and Agro-Industry Department and the Regional Directorates to provide support for the delivery of Feed Africa: Strategy for Agricultural Transformation in Africa, 2016-2025.
The core mandate of Agriculture Finance and Rural Development Department is to develop the strategy of the Bank related to agricultural and rural finance and rural development, represent the Bank with external stakeholders, provide sector expertise to the regions by gathering experts who can be consulted by operations and closing the financing gap for private sector-led development of agricultural value chains. The Department is to mobilize and deploy the required expertise; and, provide support the design and implementation of agricultural finance and rural development operations for key commodity value chains. The Agriculture Finance and Rural Development Department is structured into two Divisions: (i) Agriculture and Rural Finance Division; and (ii) Rural Infrastructure Development Division.
The Rural Infrastructure Development Division has the following deliverables:
1. High-quality and Innovative Instruments for Rural Infrastructure Integrated into Projects
2. Practical Implementation Arrangements with Key Implementing Partners
3. Knowledge Management of Rural Infrastructure Best Practices
4. Enabling Environment and Alliances with Key Stakeholders
5. Monitoring of Performance and Recommendations for Corrective Actions

The Senior Agro/Development Economist contributes to the deployment of the Bank’s Rural Infrastructure Development as large, and especially Special Agro-industrial Processing Zones (SAPZ) flagship program and assists in the implementation of Feed Africa: Strategy for Agricultural Transformation in Africa 2016 – 2025. Feed Africa Strategy contributes to the fulfilment of the African Development Bank’s vision — as defined in its Ten-Year Strategy (TYS) and amplified in the High 5 Initiatives — of being the lead development financial institution in Africa, dedicated to providing quality assistance to Regional Member Countries in their economic growth efforts. The Strategy seeks to transform African agriculture through 18 priority value chains and five agro-ecological zones. The transformation will require a set of seven enablers:
1. Increase productivity by catalyzing the development of effective input distribution systems and reduction in post-harvest waste and loss;
2. Realize the value of increased production by facilitating increased investment into output markets and supporting market incentives for value addition;
3. Increase investment into enabling infrastructure, both hard and soft infrastructure;
4. Create an enabling agribusiness environment with appropriate policies and regulation;
5. Catalyze capital flows (especially commercial lending and private investment) to scale agribusinesses;
6. Ensure inclusivity, sustainability and effective nutrition beyond what the market may deliver otherwise;
7. Coordinate activities to kick start transformation, align activities and investments of different actors, and guide initial activities to the point where private sector actors can be crowded in
The SAPZ Initiative is one of the flagship programs identified in the Agricultural Transformation in Africa Agenda which seeks to support or create agro-industrial clusters: a concentration of producers, agro-industries, traders and other private and public actors engaged in the agri-food industry and inter-connecting and building value networks, either formally or informally, addressing common challenges and pursuing common opportunities.
