The African Development Bank (AfDB) has unveiled a landmark initiative (The High 5s) to accelerate Africa's development over the next 10 years and within the context of the Bank’s Ten-Year Strategy. Under this initiative, the High-Five priority areas of focus in Africa—to (1) light up and power Africa, (2) feed Africa, (3) integrate Africa, (4) industrialize Africa, and (5) improve the quality of life for the people of Africa—form a blueprint for African countries to embark on a course of sustainable transformation.
