What: Building PPP Expertise

We partnered with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) to organize and host a high-level dialogue on PPP targeting the African region in Accra, Ghana. This dialogue offered a platform to seek expert views and discuss best practices and concrete ways to promote effective PPP for sustainable electricity and energy efficiency projects in the region.

Some 40 high-level representatives from ministries, policy makers, energy regulators, banks, public and private utilities, and sector experts from 10 countries were in attendance at this workshop, which ran from November 16-17, 2015. During this conference, panelists openly discussed the steps taken to reform the sector in Nigeria and Ghana. Lessons learned, case studies, and experiences were shared from abroad, namely from Georgia, the Philippines, and India.

This high-level workshop is part of our PPP conference program which empowers decision-makers through regional conferences worldwide that help define best strategies and practices for the successful implementation of public-private partnerships in the sustainable electricity sector.

“This workshop represents the right type of initiative that is needed around the world. The provision of adequate and affordable energy is a fundamental prerequisite for the economic and social development of any country”

Hon. Dr. Kwabena Donkor, Ghanaian Minister of Power
