Winners of the Africa Development Impact Awards Announced

Five innovative projects in the High 5 areas have been awarded the Africa Development Impact Award.

Morocco received the Light up and power Africa category with an innovative solar power plant project to scale up renewable energy capacity; Mauritania won the Feed Africa category for an irrigation project to increase resilience to climate change.

A total of 22 submissions were received on all of the High 5 areas covering the continent and rigorously assessed by experts.

Making a difference in people's lives requires effective and high quality operations for long-term impacts. Effective tracking and transparency in achieving impact are instrumental to achieve the High 5 goals.

To scale up its impact, the African Development Bank announced the winners of the Africa Development Impact during its Annual Meetings in Ahmedabad, India, on May 24, 2017, with Lerato Mbele acting as master of ceremony and Nollywood actress Omotola J. Ekeinde handing over the awards.
