Africa energy atlas to be launched at World Economic Forum on Africa
20 January 2017
The Atlas of Africa’s Energy Resources will be launched at the World Economic Forum on Africa in May 2017.
Produced by the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA) and the African Development Bank (AfDB) in cooperation with the United Nations Energy Programme (UNEP), the Atlas brings together data and information about the continent’s energy resources in a format that is easily understandable to policy makers, planners, investors and developers, while also being highly accessible to the general publication.
The Atlas details Africa’s energy resources, and also covers energy and cross-cutting issues (such as the environment and health), regional energy integration and markets, and energy and sustainable development. In addition, the Atlas contains energy profiles of 54 African countries.
The World Economic Forum on Africa will take place in Durban, South Africa, on 3-5 May 2017.
