According to the bank website, the project will expand access to reliable and affordable energy in the region and help member countries of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) to improve their energy security as part of a broader regional integration effort. It aims to promote and strengthen the governance and sustainability of the electricity sector in the Central African region through the development of an effective, uniform and transparent policy, institutional and regulatory framework that will define and establish clear and harmonised strategies, policies, principles, rules, processes and standards to be adopted by stakeholders in the sector in ECCAS Member States. The project has four components, three main components related to project implementation: (i) development of a regional energy policy and an ESMS and strengthening of the regional institutional framework for renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE), (ii) development of a regional interconnection code and the commissioning of the Energy Information System of the Central African Power Pool (EIS-CAPP), (iii) operationalisation and improvement of the new regional regulatory framework ; and (iv) a fourth component related to project management. The project cost is UA 5.273 million, financed by an ADF-15 grant for regional public goods (RPG) in the amount of UA 4.993 million, to which is added an in-kind contribution from ECCAS and CAPP equivalent to about UA 0.280 million.
