High-level Workshop on “Public-Private Partnerships’ implementation in the Energy Sector in Africa"
Challenges, Best Practices and New Trends
Thursday, June 30, 2011 to Friday, July 1, 2011
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The workshop responds to a number of African governments’ requests for assistance in the drafting of guidelines on establishing and managing PPP projects through the whole life cycle that includes preparation, implementation and service delivery in addition to the structuring of appropriate institutions and regulatory frameworks. The main objective of the workshop is to examine the main challenges and prospects to scale up private sector investment in the Energy sector in Africa, with a special focus on the main components of the PPP implementation framework. Through the analysis of African and international best practices, the workshop will examine the set of main principles for the PPP implementation framework in terms of processes and institutions, project structures, and recommended legislative and regulatory arrangements that would result in optimal risk allocation and improvements in financing and deal structuring arrangements.

Specific objectives of this workshop include the following:

•Enhance member countries’ capacity to mobilize increased financial, technical and human resources in support of Africa's clean energy development

•Provide the opportunity for participants from both public and private sectors to exchange experiences and new ideas and discuss practical strategies for PPP implementations that would improve service delivery in the energy sector.

•Present key lessons for a workable PPP implementation guide/framework, which is consistent with good governance principles in order to encourage greater private sector participation in the energy sector.

•Provide energy/infrastructure agencies with the necessary skills and competencies needed to realize sustainable and bankable PPP projects.
