African Development Bank: The New Deal on Energy for Africa

The African Development Bank’s (AfDB’s) “New Deal on Energy for Africa” aims to accelerate energy investments to reach universal access to electricity by 2025. “The former UN Secretary General Mr. Kofi Annan did a fantastic work with the Africa Progress Panel Report, which actually calls for action on this particular issue”, said President of AfDB Akinwumi Adesina during a press conference at this year’s World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos.
