The financing requirements to close Africa’s infrastructure deficit are estimated at over US$ 100 billion annually for the next several decades. With African governments feeling the increased pressure of rising urbanisation and population growth, the provision of key physical and social infrastructure remains a priority across the Continent.

Innovative infrastructure financing mechanisms will continue to be important as governments seek to focus on the provision of key services to their citizens driven by social expectations of improved service delivery.

We provide advisory negotiation support across the project cycle ranging from due diligence and site acquisition advice to SPV establishment and drafting and negotiation of key Project Agreements.
