Yearly Report 2014

Jun 29, 2015

Promoting inclusive financial systems in Africa.

The MFW4A Partnership is proud to present its Yearly Report 2014, which highlights our achievements over the last year. This year's report is unique as it covers the last year of MFW4A's 2012-2014 strategy (Phase II). In 2014, we have intensified our efforts in pursuit of our strategic goals: (i) to be the reference financial sector development knowledge hub on Africa; (ii) to be a vibrant financial sector development networking platform; (iii) to be a key voice on financial sector development in Africa. MFW4A has evolved substantially since its establishment by the then G8 in the 2007 Heiligendamm Declaration. Policymakers in Africa increasingly share the goal of MFW4A through building well-functioning financial systems. An independent progress review in May 2014 concluded that MFW4A was very successful in delivering knowledge management and dissemination, and has grown to become a well-known voice in African financial sector development. Looking ahead, Phase III (2015-2017) will carry the Partnership's engagement to the new level of effectiveness by embracing a shift even more towards African stakeholders. We will further support increased interactions between development partners and financial sector stakeholders, with a view to identifying and supporting projects of mutual interests. Phase III will also see MFW4A re-structured along thematic lines. MFW4A will also continue to strengthen knowledge management to inform policy makers and equip them with the the skills and awareness necessary to tackle the major financial sector issues on the continent. We hope that the enhanced model will serve the needs of MFW4A's clients more effectively. We hope you enjoy reading this Yearly Report 2014 and we look forward to your continuous support to increase our impact further in 2015 and beyond.
