The Medium Term Strategy
The IDBZ’s Medium Term Strategy: 2016-2020 is informed by three agendas namely the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimAsset), the Ten-Point Plan and the recently approved United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As a DFI whose mandate is underpinned on infrastructure development, IDBZ is a key player under the Infrastructure and Utilities cluster. Broadly, this cluster is expected to play a catalytic role since a robust, elaborate and resilient infrastructure ushers a solid foundation in the stimulation of national economic growth at large. According to the ZimAsset agenda, the cluster’s main areas of focus include the rehabilitation of infrastructural assets and the recovery of utility services in Zimbabwe.
Clearly, the above three broad developmental agendas recognize the importance of infrastructure as a critical enabler to economic growth and development. Consistent with the IDBZ mandate and as a direct contribution to the objectives of the Infrastructure and Utilities cluster of the ZimAsset, the Bank’s Medium Term Strategy: 2016 – 2020 boldly reinforces focus of its operational activities towards the following five infrastructure sectors: energy; transport; water and sanitation; ICT and housing (basic offsite and onsite infrastructure)
