AfDB Graduate Internship 2011/2012-African Development Bank

AfDB Graduate Internship 2011/2012-African Development Bank

Know your employer

  • The AfDB, its sister international finance institutions, including those of the Arab world, and other partners are working with authorities in Egypt and other North African countries to build foundations for growth that are inclusive and sustainable. The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group is inviting comments on its Draft Energy Sector Policy to encourage its stakeholders to provide feedback and input.
  • Background: Africa is well-endowed with a variety of renewable and non-renewable energy resources. However, most African countries are characterized by low access to affordable and reliable modern energy services. The Bank Group has accorded high priority to the energy sector and elaborated its first Energy Sector Policy in 1994. In light of new developments in the energy sector and emerging development challenges, especially the growing importance of climate-related energy issues, the Bank Group is revising its energy Policy to guide its interventions in the sector.

Facts About AfDB

AfDB is to be congratulated in this bold step to revise its 1994 Energy Policy that was largely unimplemented. having said that, the document for consultation lacks analytical basis to support many of the guidning principles and strategic actions. Perhaps these will be contained in the annexe that are not attched. Some refrences are too ols like the IEA from 2002. I suggest rely on more recent refrences from the OECD, IEA, other MFIs particularly the World Bank, etc. The draft lacks tables, charts, figures, past investment and future investment trends. soem figures quoted from the CEIF (March 2008) may be outdated. Suggset use more recent figures from the IEA. UNDP is amother excellent source of several energy policies. Much is left to be anticipated in form of the Strategy (under consultation) and future guidelines.
