ADFIAP’s 5-year strategic plan, now in its fourth year of implementation, is certainly on track. This was the assessment of the Board when it met in Tehran in conjunction with the 31st ADFIAP Annual Meetings held recently in the Iranian capital.

Highlights of the five strategic directions and achievements so far include: (a) Membership Development, resulting in an increase in the number of members from 52 in 25 countries in 2005 to 92 members in 37 countries as of April 2008; (b) Policy Development and Advocacy resulting in the recognition of and preference for ADFIAP as a development advocate and partner by being an NGO in consultative status with the UN’s Economic and Social Council, as Co-Chair of the UN Environment Program (UNEP) Finance Initiative’s Asia-Pacific Task Force Outreach Group, as Member, Advisory Board, Cooperation Dialogue of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), invitations and speaking engagements in high-level conferences and forums in the area of environmental banking, sustainable consumption and production, socially-responsible investing and related areas; (c) Resource Development and Innovation resulting in a remarkable increase in financial and partnership resources, tripling surpluses for more member benefits (d) Human Capital Development, Professional Standards and Education benefiting hundreds of members’ officers and staff through training and credentialing programs of the Institute of Development Finance (IDF); and (e) Support of ADFIAP –affiliated National and Sub-regional DFI Associations and Counterpart Regional Associations Worldwide resulting in co-organized training events, more interaction, and frequent exchanges of information with same-purposed associations regionwide and around the world.
