AfDB picks Nairobi as regional resource hub
Daily Nation
29 June 2015


Quote:
A regional bank has settled for Nairobi as its first Public-Private Partnership resource hub in Africa.

The Africa Development Bank Regional Director for Eastern Africa, Mr Gabriel Negatu Monday said Kenya’s capital city would effectively be the region’s PPP resource hub as it seeks to ensure efficient financing for the continent’s infrastructure projects.

“We strongly believe that the private sector has a big role to play in bridging Africa’s annual infrastructure deficits of $93 billion. AfDB will, through the PPP resource hubs, support governments with technical support to ensure mitigation and management of legal, financial and technical risks,” said Mr Negatu.

AfDB plans to establish similar hubs on the continent to provide African governments with capacity for structuring win-win PPP projects as it bridges the continent’s infrastructure financing needs.

He said with infrastructure being a core economic focus in line with the AfDB 10-year strategy, all stakeholders need to come up with innovative systems that work efficiently in order to address the current financing gap.

Africa Sustainability Hub launched in Nairobi
Institute of Development Studies
10 June 2015


Quote:
“There is no better time to launch the Africa Sustainability Hub than now,” says Dr Mohamed Kyari from the Human Resources, Science and Technology Department of the African Union.

The AU strategy science and technology and innovation was confirmed by Heads of State last June. The vision of the African Union is to develop a strategy for development led by African citizens. Sustainability is a priority area across all the pillars of work. “We cannot live without sustainability,” Dr Kyari says.

The AU African climate change strategy points towards mitigation, adaptation and capacity building activities, Dr Kyari observes, urging the new Hub – called STEPS Africa – to engage with all aspects of the AU’s strategy. As Divinder Sharma from DFID Kenya argued, “climate change cannot be an add-on, but it must be central” – to agriculture, transport, risk management and cash transfers, urban construction, private sector technology development, development financing and so on. £235m is allocated to Kenya from the UK’s contribution to the International Climate Fund for a range of activities, attempting to work cohesively across government, private sector and civil society.
