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. Within the COO’s Office, the Quality Assurance and Results Department (ORQR) seeks to improve the quality and the development impact of the Bank’s operations.

The department includes four divisions—Results Reporting, Quality Assurance, Compliance and Safeguards and Gender and Social Development Monitoring. The Gender and Social Development Monitoring Division’s role is to work towards reducing gender inequalities and promote effective engagement with civil society organisations. As part of its mandate, the Division ensures that gender dimensions are mainstreamed in the Bank’s strategies, policies and operations. To promote gender activities, the Bank has recently appointed a Special Envoy on Gender (SEOG) tasked with coordinating and advising on gender.
