Infrastructure

How will Africa close the infrastructure gap, deliver timely projects in sectors pivotal for development

About this session

How do we solve Africa's Infrastructure Paradox? There is no shortage of project opportunities, supply of capital or eagerness of investors, yet there is consistent under investment into infrastructure projects in the region. Infrastructure investment has stagnated at 3.5% of GDP since 2000, a full percentage point below where it needs to be. Against the backdrop of rising debt to GDP ratios across the region, a booming population, the challenges posed by COVID 19 and the climate crisis, how will Africa close the infrastructure gap, deliver timely projects in sectors pivotal for development and unlock the incredible growth potential that exists within the region?
