Private sector financing

During the year there were 21 new renewable-energy projects in RSA, which had had no projects recorded in 2017.

Cameroon received a commitment for a $1.4bn hydropower plant,* the first major private sector financed infrastructure in Cameroon since 2012.

Other countries with PPI transactions include Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Mali, Namibia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Zambia.**

However, with the exception of ICT, the private sector provides a lower share of financing for African infrastructure than in other developing regions.
