Project Preparation Facilities Network
The Project Preparation Facilities Network (PPFN) is a network of funding facilities dedicated to sustainable infrastructure in Africa.
Members of the PPFN advocate for more financial resources for infrastructure project preparation and are committed to work together through information and data sharing about projects, case studies and best practice in governance.
The PPFN was launched at a meeting hosted by the African Development Bank in Tunis in June 2014. Members of the PPFN are listed below.
Meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa, in June 2016, members of the PPFN agreed that focussing on two key objectives – information sharing & project collaboration and governance & business modelling – would serve to enhance co-financing and collaboration.
The meeting also agreed that the Secretariat of the PPFN should be held by a member of the Network and rotated every two years. The Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) offered to take on the Secretariat role for the next two years, and undertook to ‘champion’ the Network.
The amended procedures and operational changes will be adopted when the PPFN meet during the 2016 ICA Annual Meeting in Abidjan in November 2016.
