Overall, the evaluation has three major messages. First, the Bank has been able to produce a good range of regulatory and strategic documents, generally of acceptable quality and highly relevant to its own priorities. Second, the suites are not well organised, due to a lack of clarity and to issues around management of information. Third, the existence of the documents does not guarantee their correct and full implementation.

Although the AfDB Trust Fund portfolio has grown rapidly, it still represents less than 1 percent of African Development Fund/African Development Bank lending levels. With an equivalent of US$61 million of disbursements it is well below the number of trust funds and disbursement levels of other multilateral development banks.
