Editor Consultant for the development of PIDA 2016 Progress Report


Deadline: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016
BACKGROUND
Infrastructure is at the heart of regional integration and development and one of Africa’s top priorities. As the least integrated continent, Africa as a continent is characterised by low levels of intra-regional economic exchange and the smallest share of global trade. Building new infrastructure and making existing infrastructure more efficient is vital for economic advancement and sustainable development.
It is for this reason that the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), developed by the African Union Commission (AUC), NEPAD Agency, African Development Bank (AfDB), United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and Regional Economic Communities (RECs), promotes regional economic integration by building mutually beneficial infrastructure and strengthening the ability of countries to trade and establish regional value chains for increased competitiveness.
The 51 PIDA Priority Action Plan (PAP) programmes and projects are spread across the four sectors of Energy, Transport, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Trans-boundary Water. The programmes and projects are expected to lead to an integrated continent, fuelling international trade, job creation and sustainable economic growth.  In order to boost intra-African trade and raise the continent’s competitiveness in the global economy, the programme sets out short-term goals to be achieved by 2020, medium-term goals to be achieved by 2030 and long-term goals by 2040.
The NEPAD Agency, as the implementing agency of PIDA, reports back on progress in the delivery of the 51 PIDA programmes and projects annually, as a direct result of the collective efforts of PIDA’s stakeholders. The report will be presented during PIDA Week, a multi-stakeholder platform, to fast-track the speedy implementation of PIDA
