The African Development Bank (the Bank) is a leading development institution on the continent, focused on promoting economic development and poverty reduction. It engages with the full range and complexity of development challenges in Africa. It has integrated operations, lending directly to the public and private sectors through a variety of instruments. It also provides advisory services and has an increasing country presence through a growing network of 34 field offices. The Office of the Chief Operating Officer (COO) is charged with improving coherence and coordination across the Bank’s complexes, ensuring strategic priorities are reflected in resources allocation, enhancing monitoring and management of performance, and strengthening the focus on results.

  • Strengthen the Bank institutional capacity to mainstream gender through training and other means;
  • Assist the SEOG in coordinating and leading the development and revision of action plans for gender mainstreaming.
