Confidence in the African Development Bank Increases!
2022 was a year of renewed confidence in the African Development Bank Group. Contributing countries mobilized and contributed $8.9 billion to replenish the African Development Fund under ADF-16. Furthermore, they acceded to the request of the Bank Group's Senior Management to create a Special Climate Action Window under ADF-16.

Japan, Norway, Portugal, Spain, the Swiss Confederation, Germany, and the Global Energy Alliance are providing significant financial support to the Bank to finance sectors vital to development. Whether it is to boost renewable energies, fight climate change, promote the Lusophone Pact or develop the agricultural sector, their commitment has been exceptional, thus testifying to the shareholders' increased confidence in the Bank’s efforts to foster the continent’s development.
