DBSA: A 21St Century African Development Finance Institution Supporting the Development of Sub-Saharan Africa Through the Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals
Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA)
The African continent has made considerable progress in economic growth and human development over the past three decades. However, much more still needs to be done. The Sustainable Development Goals represent a pertinent and timely world partnership through which the development challenges facing the world’s citizens, and Africans in particular, can be tackled. Africa’s infrastructure financing requirements are substantial and implementation capacity is limited. Access to finance for infrastructure is hampered by paucity of bankable projects and the absence of well-developed
project and programme plans. The DBSA, working together its global network of international development institutions, seeks to address some of challenges by catalyzing by private investment in infrastructure on the continent through products and services within its value chain.
