Round Table 3
Collaboration for Scale and Impact was hosted by the African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM) on the 26th August 2016.
Each renewable energy IPP in the country invests a percentage of revenue into socio-economic development (SED) initiatives. Some IPP also invest in enterprise development (ED) measures. Increasingly, IPP’s are interested to collaborate on these efforts. This roundtable discussed how collaboration can support the scaling-up and replication of successful local development initiatives. Participants and speakers identified various forms of collaboration and discussed success and hindering factors. Companies proposed concrete opportunities for collaboration based on SED initiatives that already impact communities positively.
