Several regional energy ministers confirmed for October power forum
Encouraging private and public collaboration to make energy deals happen is high on the agenda at the rebranded Future Energy Central Africa forum that is taking place from 2-3 October in Yaoundé, Cameroon this year. “We have deliberately put together a very practical programme” says event director Marie Sachet, “because I believe all stakeholders agree on what the generation potential in the region is, but we need specific actions to prepare the sector for much-needed investments and bankable power projects.”
She continues: “Future Energy Central Africa is working with the energy ministries in the region, project developers, financiers as well as regulators to set the agenda to encourage private and public cooperation in order to increase energy capacity and economic growth in Central Africa. Our conference programme includes a high-level ministerial keynote panel discussion on the opening day, successful project leaders from the private sector as well as utility leaders.”
The UN Special Rapporteur will continue to monitor developments in Cameroon closely, and is at the disposal of the authorities to provide assistance or advice as required
