Rethinking the role of National Development Banks

Second Regional Consultation on "The Role of National and Regional Development Banks in Africa"

27-28 June 2006, Paris, France

The second Multi-stakeholder Consultation was part of a series of consultations launched by the United Nations (FfD Office, UNDESA) in December 2005, in collaboration with concerned partners: national development banks (NDBs), international financing institutions (IFIs), regional development banks, UN regional Commissions, and other public or private organisms, civil society or academic circles. These regional consultations aim to discuss how to better fulfil the role that has been, or still is, assigned to the national development banks in Africa, in promoting social and economic development.
