Examining the African Development Bank: A Primer for NGOs

By Shannon Lawrence

The purpose of this Primer is to provide basic information about: 1) how the African Development Bank (AfDB) works and what its priorities are; 2) who controls its activities; 3) why it might be worth the attention of African civil society organizations; and 4) what people can do to learn more about and change AfDB projects and policies that concern them. The Primer was written by Shannon Lawrence in January 2007 and published by the Bank Information Center (BIC).
