Addis Ababa, March 26, 2023 (FBC) – A High-Level Public-Private Dialogue on private sector investment in electricity and infrastructure development in Africa will take place next week in Addis Ababa.
The high level meeting, organized by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in collaboration with RES4Africa Foundation will be held from 28- 30 March 2023, in Addis Ababa.
The High-Level Public-Private Dialogue will gather private and public stakeholders supporting the development of Africa’s infrastructure and engage in policy dialogue on what is needed to advance Africa’s electricity sector reform agenda and ensure adequate investments flows towards this sector, according to ECA.
The Dialogue will be an opportunity to discuss the main findings from the UNECA and RES4Africa supported national electricity market regulatory reviews.
It is also expected to trigger forward-looking conversation about how policy and regulatory environments can ensure adequate openness, attractiveness and readiness of African electricity markets to crowd-in private investments and deliver on Agenda 2063 and SDG-7 targets.
