Using a demand-driven development approach, our programs in Africa build the capacity of local institutions and create lasting impact, whether it is helping protect local biodiversity, facilitating international trade, or helping world leaders recognize famine conditions and plan accordingly. The common thread is our commitment to serving the needs of beneficiaries and local partners to promote true and lasting change. Our Africa portfolio is managed through two regional business units: East and Southern Africa, and West and Central Africa and Haiti.
