The NBF is launching the Africa Infrastructure Desk to unlock concrete investment and project opportunities along the North-South Corridor and SADC, focusing on rail, ports and pipeline sectors in the early stages. This innovative research, linkage and relationship platform will contribute to the development of investment and commercial opportunities for participating member companies, allow coordination on pursuing projects, provide leading information on developments in infrastructure and allow engagement between public and private sector. The Africa Infrastructure Desk will have meaningful impact for spatial development and regional integration in SADC and the North South Corridor.
The NBF seeks to appoint an Africa Infrastructure Desk Manager.
Established in 2011 by the Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs and the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Strategic Water Partners Network South Africa (SWPN-SA) is a partnership between the Department of Water Affairs and the private sector in South Africa who have an interest in addressing the countries water challenges. The aim of the partnership is to close the water gap between supply and demand which is expected to rise to 17% based on current demographic trends and industrial growth plans. The SWPN-SA has three working groups that identify and implement projects: Water Use Efficiency and Leakage Reduction ; Agriculture and Supply Chain Water; and Effluent and Wastewater Management. The NEPAD Business Foundation is the host and secretariat of the SWPN-SA.
