Opportunities and Challenges 2016: Infrastructure in Addis Ababa and Dar es Salaam

February 10, 2016

Immersive Field Course: Africa: Building Cities

January 2016

Consider the potential for private finance and delivery of your sector of infrastructure in each city over the next decade. What are the main opportunities? What are some of the key challenges?

These are some ideas for accelerating the speed and quality of economic development in sub-Saharan Africa.   We are hopeful that they are well considered and that a few of them are useful. Future teams will have the opportunity not only to learn the landscape for themselves, but also to build on some portions of the work that has come before.

Our aspiration is that the tools of business and finance can be part of driving economic development, environmental sustainability, and individual opportunity in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and elsewhere in the Global South.
