The African Development Bank (AfDB) has designed an action plan that will lay the groundwork for effective engagement with civil society.

Based on the Bank’s engagement and consultations with civil society, the African Development Bank (AfDB) has designed an action plan that will lay the groundwork for effective engagement with civil society. The Action Plan includes capacity building as a means of providing civil society with information, knowledge and skills that are essential for actual engagement.

This shall include strengthening internal capacity on civil society engagement (CSE) as well as building the capacity of civil society organisations and actors to engage with the Bank on its development agenda.

In this context, the AfDB Civil Society Division organized a design-thinking workshop to identify strategic approaches to strengthen capacity on civil society engagement.
