According to IFC website, the IFC will provide transaction advisory support to the Ministry of Energy and Water to assist in structuring and tendering a public-private partnership with a qualified private investor to build, operate, and maintain a 40MW solar PV power plant. The Government is considering options for structuring the project, including using the World Bank Group’s Scaling Solar approach.
The objective of the proposed project is to assist the Ministry of Energy and Water in implementing a solar power project to supply energy to the national grid. The successful implementation of the project is expected to improve energy security in Afghanistan, mobilize foreign direct investment, and reduce harmful GHG emissions through the use of renewable energy sources.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
