At the 18th International Economic Forum on Africa, the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, called on the OECD Development Centre (DEV) and the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) to establish a technical platform on infrastructure and skills development. ACET and OECD DEV, working with African and global partners, implemented the first phase of an initiative funded by GIZ/BMZ to identify areas for speeding up processes for preparing, funding and implementing infrastructure projects in Africa, while meeting the quality challenge at the same time. The key outputs from Phase I were (i) Four cases studies of recent or active infrastructure projects in Africa; (ii) Creation of a High-Level Think Group, and a Senior Technical Experts Group for three global policy dialogues; and (iii) a final report, Accelerating and Scaling Up Quality Infrastructure in Africa (link) launched in July, 2020. The report recommended that a second phase be initiated with the objective is to: • To promote the use of the PIDA quality label for all infrastructure projects across Africa, thus ensuring a consistent quality level in all African infrastructure projects • To create an African Community of Practice (COP) of African infrastructure practitioners and a platform for knowledge sharing and peer learning. In Q1 2021, ACET received funding for an interim phase to develop implementation plans for both recommendations. These were submitted as part of the communicate for discussion at the AU Heads of State Summit in February 2021. An interim project manager and consultant were also onboarded to complete this work. The initiative was featured at the OECD Africa Forum in Feb 2021
