ADF Financing, Project Preparation, Advisory and Brokering Role
The AfDB has been an active partner in rehabilitating Inga 1 and laying the groundwork for Grand Inga, implemented between 1993 and 1997, with ADF funding.
ADF-11 has invested US$ 15 million to finance project preparation work leading to feasibility analysis for Inga 3 project, the first phase of Grand Inga. The Bank is providing active counsel and assistance to the DRC Government. It led a DFI coordination process. Without its intervention, the project would have stalled.
ADF-12 made a technical assistance grant of US$ 37 million for feasibility studies to realize the potential for 4,800 MW of Inga 3 which will be an investment of US$ 10 billion. The Inga project is a PIDA priority project.
ADF-13 is expected to play a crucial role in the realization of the project.
