Our Governance

ADFI’s governance structure consists of the AfDB’s President and Board of Directors, a Governing Council comprised of both AfDB senior management and ADFI partners, a management and technical committee drawn from the AfDB, and the ADFI Coordinator.

The ADFI Governing Council is responsible for determining the general policy and strategic direction of ADFI as well as approving the coordination unit's work program.

A coordination unit managed and housed within the AfDB and led by a coordinator is responsible for the implementation of ADFI's strategy, working in collaboration with relevant departments within the AfDB, ADFI partners as well as external DFS partners with similar objectives.
