Updated Regional Power status in Africa Power Pools

The Continent needs to sustain the commendable positive trend, and for this the countries should continue to:

 Mobilise investments for physical intraregional infrastructure - this should include agreeing on strategies for the mobilisation of domestic resources such as pension funds and infrastructure bonds; y Provide conducive legal and regulatory frameworks for private sector participation - this should include legally empowering the power pools to act on behalf of RECs (and governments), particularly on power deals; 

 Continue strengthening the institutional capacity and skills of the power pools and directorates in charge of energy in the RECs – with a focus on enhancing the capacity and skills for structuring and negotiating power deals with the private sector; and y Take necessary measures to enhance the role of the private sector.
