From plans to actions – Africa’s experience in implementing the SEforALL initiative

Tuesday, April 4th: 16:45 - 17:45 - Media Room

HOST: African Development Bank


The session will discuss the state of implementation of the SEforALL initiative in Africa, focusing on what is required to implement the priorities identified in the Action Agendas and to mobilize the resources required to finance the opportunities contained in the Investment Prospectuses. The discussion will focus on the following three issues: 1 – How can there be a coordinated response from the different stakeholders to the priorities identified by countries? 2 – What are the models/examples of implementation and coordination structures? 3 – How can the Investment Prospectuses become a real tool for attracting additional investments from the public and particularly the private sector?
