The Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), in partnership with the African Development Bank and GET.invest (formerly RECP), is excited to announce that the 5th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum will take place in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on 13-14 March 2019.
The Forum, supported by SEforALL, Club-ER, ECREEE and UNIDO, convenes public, private and other stakeholders with the goal to boost clean energy access globally and in particular in Africa, where 588 million people still lack electricity. To intensify the exchange with players from and outside Africa, ARE will also hold its Annual General Meeting in conjunction with the Forum the day before.
Building on the success of previous editions, the event will showcase the latest off-grid political and funding initiatives, discuss trends and innovations, and build win-win partnerships through matchmaking.
The Forum will be held in English and French, with simultaneous translation to the other language.
