2017 African Development Bank Annual Meeting

Home / 2017 African Development Bank Annual Meeting
Ahmedabad, India

Reflecting the significance of agriculture in Africa and in the Bank’s development work, the 2017 Annual Meetings will be held on the theme: “Transforming Agriculture for Wealth Creation in Africa.” Agriculture has a central place in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the African Union’s Agenda 2063, both of which focus on poverty reduction, overcoming hunger and food insecurity. Reflecting the global and continental agenda, the Bank has aptly prioritized agriculture transformation by designating it as one of its High 5s: Feed Africa.
