The mission of the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) is to advance the development impact in the region by expanding access to development finance, and effectively integrating and implementing sustainable development solutions.

The DBSA's purpose is to accelerate sustainable socio-economic development, and improve the quality of life of the people of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and, more recently, the whole of the African continent, by driving financial and non-financial investments in the social and economic infrastructure sectors: social infrastructure – infrastructure aimed at addressing backlogs and expediting the delivery of essential social services to support sustainable living conditions and a better quality of life within communities; and economic infrastructure – infrastructure aimed at addressing capacity constraints and bottlenecks in order to optimise economic growth potential and support regional integration. The DBSA has prioritised water, energy, transport and ICT as its key focus areas.
