Evaluation of the African Development Bank’s Economic and Sector Work

We supported the Independent Development Evaluation Department of the African Development Bank (AfDB) to undertake an evaluation of the AfDB's Economic and Sector Work (ESW). ESW refers to the research and knowledge work conducted by the Bank. The evaluation focused on the planning and budgeting of ESW at the Bank, the technical quality of Bank’s ESW, and the results of ESW, mainly to inform the implementation of the Bank’s Knowledge Management Strategy (KMS) 2022–2031 and the AfDB’s Ten-year Strategy for 2024–2033.
