4th Annual SEforALL Africa Workshop

The SEforALL Africa Hub hosted by the African Development Bank in partnership with the African Union Commission, the NEPAD Agency, UNDP, the SADC Secretariat (representing the Regional Economic Communities) and in collaboration with the SEforALL Global Facilitation Team will organise the 4th Annual SEforALL Africa Workshop.

The workshop will take place between March 28-29 in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire.

The workshop will review the state of play of the advancement of SEforALL country action in Africa, discuss how to accelerate the implementation and financing of the priorities identified in the SEforALL Action Agendas and Investment Prospectuses under development in many African countries, and explore how to ensure a maximum degree of synergies with other key initiatives on the continent, including the Africa Renewable Energy initiative (AREI) and the New Deal on Energy for Africa. The workshop will bring together African institutions, SEforALL focal points, development partners active in Africa, private sector and civil society representatives.

This year, a central theme will be Green Mini-Grids with an update of the progress of the African Development Bank’s GMG Market Development Programme, and plans for phase 2.
