The development objectives of the Power Interconnection Project for Côte d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea (CLSG) are: (i) to reduce the cost of and increase the electricity supply at utility level, and to increase the export capability of Cote d’Ivoire, and (ii) to increase the technical integration of the West African Power Pool (WAPP) network. The additional financing (AF) aims to fill a financing gap due to several factors of United States (U.S.) 104.9 million dollars of the WAPP CLSG power interconnection component to avoid delays in completing the line. It also provides U.S. 17.5 million dollars of AF for the WAPP integration and technical assistance component to scale up the impact of this component, and to fill a financing gap created by the fluctuations of the special drawing rights (SDR) and U.S. dollar exchange rate.
This project is part of the Programme for Infrastructure Development In Africa (PIDA)
