CBN Project Development Investment Working Group


African Union Heads of State established The Continental Business Network (CBN) in June 2015, as their exclusive infrastructure and private sector investment advisory platform, to deepen the African investment community’s participation in The Programme for Infrastructure Development for Africa (PIDA), The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the overall promotion of Institutional Investor Public Partnerships (IIPP’s).
Building Project Development Pipelines Back Better in a Post COVID-19 Economy

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgent need to develop new essential power, transport, social, supply chain and logistics infrastructure assets, to build more resilience, to shield Africa from the current and anticipated future pandemics.

African pension and sovereign wealth funds through the Continental Business Network (CBN), are investigating the role which they can play through the use of capital, knowledge and portfolio companies, to Build Africa’s Project Development Pipelines Back Better in a Post COVID-19 Economy.

To achieve this the CBN has established the CBN Project Development Investment Working Group initiative.

CBN Project Development Investment Working Group

The vast majority of Africa’s essential infrastructure is greenfield and yet to be designed, developed, financed and built.

The primary aim of the CBN Project Development Investment Working Group initiative is to crowd-in capital to private sector led project development, and accelerate the project development to financial close.

The Working Group’s focus will be on supporting the Private Sector Project Development Community, by mobilizing private capital allocations and finance into bankable project development opportunities, and establishing African project development as an investable asset class, and highlighting policy bottlenecks and solutions, to attract long-term private capital to the continent’s project and pipeline development activities.

CBN Project Development Investment Working Group Initiatives

The Working Group’s activities are designed to compliment the African Union Development Agency’s (AUDA’s) 5% Agenda supportive investment initiatives, championed through the African Infrastructure Investment Guarantee Mechanism (AIGM) and the Co-Guarantee Platform (CGP) housed at the African Development Bank (AfDB).

CBN Project Development Investment Working Group Members

Working Group members will comprise of accomplished infrastructure project developers, financiers, investment and risk mitigation professionals and advisors.

CBN Project Development Investment Working Group and the CBN Council

The Working Group will be coordinated by the CBN Secretariat, with updates and outputs routinely being presented to the CBN Council for review, endorsement and implementation.

The Working Group’s Policy Statement and Roadmap, will be the guiding instrument for the CBN Council’s engagement with public sector stakeholders and leaders on the CBN’s work on Infrastructure Project Development.
