Description of the Subject: African Development Bank.

The African Development Bank is a multilateral development bank whose shareholders include fifty-three African countries (regional member countries) and twenty-four non-African Countries (America, Asia, and Europe).

The African Development Fund is managed by the African Development Bank and includes the Member States (donor countries) and recipient economies.

  1. The main objective of the African Development Fund is to achieve the poverty reduction in Africa by providing loans and grants.

The Nigeria Trust Fund is a special African Development Bank fund created in 1976 by an agreement between the Bank Group and the Government of Nigeria.

  1. The objective of the Nigeria Trust Fund is to assist the development efforts of the low-income regional African Countries whose economic and social circumstances and forecasts require concessional financing.

In 2014, the African Development Bank returned to Abidjan.

The African Development Bank belongs to the African Civilisation.

Regional Integration in Africa.

Most of the Member Countries of the African Development Bank are small, undiversified and face physical, political, and policy-induced constraints to the deeper economic integration with their neighbour countries and global economy.

However, the economic cooperation and regional integration are fundamental if Africa surpasses the trade barriers and take its rightful place in the global market.

In the last forty years, the African Development Bank has promoted the Regional Economic Communities (REC) through the regional economic cooperation, international trade growth, capacity building and renewed assistance for the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) programs.

The African Development Bank also collaborates with the national governments and the pan-African organisations; it is of particular importance with the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) to rationalise and streamline the Regional Economic Communities structures.
