Partnerships remain key to our efforts.  Collaborating with like-minded institutions enables us to accumulate knowledge, pool resources as well as skills, and hone efficiencies.

We cooperate closely with the bilateral and multilateral agencies of our Member Countries, the World Bank Group, regional development banks and specialized agencies of the United Nations, as well as a host of non-governmental organizations and private sector partners.
