WWF partners with African Development Bank
In partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB), WWF has developed a report outlining how Africa can develop sustainably without undermining the natural resource base on which all development depends. The African Ecological Futures report was launched in May during the AfDB annual meeting which celebrated the Bank’s 50th anniversary. WWF also took this opportunity to present the retiring AfDB President, Donald Kaberuka, with a Leaders for a Living Planet award in recognition of his leadership on environmental sustainability and the damage being caused by wildlife crime. WWF will work closely with the AfDB to incorporate the solutions in the report into development planning across Africa, especially infrastructure expansion and climate change impacts and adaptation.
