SPOTLIGHT ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Mobilising New Economic Drivers

In many remote areas, development arrives at a stage when further progress becomes dependant on larger infrastructure issues, such as roads, telecommunications and electric power. In Uganda, for example, only five percent of the population has access to electricity. Rural electrification and the creation of electricity-generating plants then become vital to progress. More

AKDN’s development activities in Côte d'Ivoire range from a microfinance programme to a US$ 225 million dollar investment in the the country’s infrastructure. The latter investment, Azito, is the largest private sector power plant in Sub-Saharan Africa, providing over 40 percent of Côte d'Ivoire's electricity generation capacity. The microfinance programme extends loans primarily intended to improve agricultural productivity, acquire livestock and establish small enterprises in rural and urban areas.
