Repurposing AfIDA for Post COVID-19 Africa
AfIDA was incorporated in 2016 to serve as the voice of private investors and companies active in scaling African
Infrastructure. It includes over twenty leading companies from Private Equity, IPPs, Developers, DFIs and Law Firms. AfIDA membership has grown to cover the power and renewables sector across the continent, and is broadening its actions in the wider infrastructure stakeholder base. The current COVID 19 induced crisis, affects all of Africa and all its infrastructure, and provides an opportune moment for a consolidated effort by the private sector to address this challenge in partnership with affected nations.
Please contact AfIDA as below if you are concerned about the positioning of the private sector in infrastructure projects as the impact of COVD-19 continues to unfold and wish to participate in the related discussions on these matters.This invitation is open to both existing members and non-members. We would like as many organisations as possible to contribute to the debate and ensure that all relevant concerns and interests of the private sector are reflected properly and represented in the formulation of policies and funding assistance for African Nations.
All of this to ensure that existing projects survive and new Projects may be developed. The private sector needs to continue to be part of meeting Africa’s infrastructure deficit, and this can only be possible if confidence is maintained between the public and private sectors.
