2 Clean Investments to be favored in African Countries if economically sustainable African Countries are lagging behind in access to electricity and electricity consumption per capita; annual growth in installed capacity is relatively high in some countries to help bridge the gap Countries present significant potential for renewable energies Africa Region is among most vulnerable to climate change AfDB thus Adopted « Clean Energy Investment Framework » and « Climate Risk Mitigation Policy », clearly favoring cleaner & environmentally friendlier technologies if they are economically viable to Regional Member Countries Some technologies, like CSP, are too expensive to be considered unless substantial soft financing could be mobilized Part of the solution to lower the cost of CSP could be the setup of local factories for some of the components. Such JVs between international players and local investors would also yield skilled jobs and growth. AfDB stands ready to support those initiatives.

10 In summary... Cleaner technologies are to be favoured in African Countries, if made economically sustainable for them, which may require substantial soft financing resources e.g. for developing technologies like CSP. AfDB is partnering with WBG to support eligible regional member countries in their applications to the Clean Technology Fund. The MENA CSP IP is ambitious and requires additional donor support in order to be successful. AfDB stands ready to mobilize its public and private financing instruments to assist governments and entrepreneurs in African Countries, to optimize the implementation of viable clean investments.
