Africa Infrastructure Knowledge Program Bulletin N° 1, March 2011 - Strategy and Implementation Progress


The Africa Infrastructure Knowledge Program (AIKP) is a successor program to the Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD) which grew out of the pledge by the G8 Summit of 2005 at Gleneagles to increase substantially ODA assistance to Africa, particularly the infrastructure sector, and the subsequent formation of the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA). This was against the background that sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) suffers from a weak basic infrastructure base, and that this was a key factor in the SSA region not realizing its full potential for economic growth, international trade, and poverty reduction.
