Under the NEPAD’s theme of regional integration and infrastructure, the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), was developed to coordinate governments in implementing priority infrastructure projects across Africa.
The NBF developed the Africa Infrastructure Desk (Afri-ID) to support the efforts of PIDA by coordinating the private sector and mobilising their resources to implement infrastructure projects that present commercial opportunities for members of the desk.
The Afri-ID is therefore a multi-stakeholder platform bringing together the private and public sectors, multilateral finance/development agencies and other stakeholders with the common purpose of accelerating regional infrastructure development in Africa.
To see an African continent that is enabled by high quality infrastructure that promotes regional integration, intra-Africa and international trade and development.
To accelerate the development of investment and commercial infrastructure opportunities across the African continent through private sector engagement.
AFRI-ID AFRICA FOOTPRINT
The Afri-ID is currently implementing five port and rail infrastructure projects in the Southern Africa region.
Under the mandate of the members of the desk, the Afri-ID, is also actively looking for new opportunities in other African countries and will be widening the scope of its project focus to include energy, road, water, ICT, pipeline and airport infrastructure.
