The African Development Bank promotes SE4all’s Country Action Agendas

February 19, 2016

As host of the SE4All Africa Hub, the African Development Bank (AfDB) is at the forefront in the design of national action process and strategies. The Bank provides guidance, training and feedback to countries in developing national SE4All Action Agendas and Investment Prospectuses. The AfDB directly supports the development of Action Agendas and Investment Prospectus in several countries. As of October 2015, the work has been completed in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda and work is continuing in six countries: Angola, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Energy efficiency is a central focus of these Action Agendas.

The Action Agendas is a strategy-driven document that serves as an umbrella plan for national energy sector development across SE4All’s objectives of energy access, renewables and energy efficiency. Once an Action Agenda is politically adopted, it becomes the national implementation framework under which sectoral policies are elaborated. The African Hub is focusing on implementation of these plans and acceleration in terms of investment mobilization.
