Round Tables

Thu 18 Jul’19 | Windhoek, Namibia

Namibia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Water & Forestry (MAWF) has allocated 25% (N$ 494.8 million) of its annual budget in 2019/20 to develop water infrastructure and potable water provision. The roundtable will provide MAWF with a specialist industry platform to illustrate how the national water sector will be developed over the next 5-10 years.

A key focus of the event will be on the appropriate financing mechanisms (in particular PPPs) to procure & develop major water projects and services. And how such mechanisms could successfully be applied (given Namibia’s current market needs & requirements). 

Wed 8 Sep’19 | Abu Dhabi, UAE

This platform provides new entrants into the African power and renewables market an opportunity to quantify solid opportunities and learn about incentives, raising working capital, regulatory framework, application of standards and critical initiatives to meet immediate demand.

For new and existing entrants the roundtable will cover the full range of issues connected with the preparation and delivery of power generation. The event will draw on proven regional strategies that will effectively facilitate the growth of the power market (in North, South, East and West).
