Germany Provides €10 million to NEPAD-IPPF to Boost Infrastructure Development in Africa

In early July 2023, the AfDB and KfW, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development announced the replenishment of the NEPAD – Infrastructure Project Preparation Facility  (NEPAD-IPPF) Special Fund, which aims to boost regional infrastructure in Africa. The German Government will provide €10 million to replenish the Special Fund.

Germany’s support will bolster NEPAD-IPPF’s efforts towards priority areas such as green, climate-smart infrastructure and a stronger focus on the second Priority Action Plan of the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa for the period 2021-2030 (PIDA-PAP 2). It will also support Africa’s transformation under the Africa Continental Free Trade Area by boosting intra- and extra-African trade.

The NEPAD-IPPF is a multi-donor Special Fund, hosted by the AfDB. It is a leading project preparation facility in Africa, which plays a catalytic role in providing technical and financial assistance for the preparation of regional infrastructure projects and programs. It supports African countries, Regional Economic Communities and Specialized Regional Infrastructure Development Agencies in preparing viable and high-quality regional infrastructure projects in the energy, transport, information and communication technology sectors and transboundary water resources.
