The Africa Infrastructure Fellowship Program (AIFP) is a public-private initiative to support African governments build capacity in public infrastructure procurement. Developed by the Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub), Meridiam and the World Economic Forum, the AIFP aims to mobilise stakeholders across government, the private sector and multilateral development banks to deliver a program of practical training for public sector infrastructure practitioners. The AIFP will provide participating civil servants with tailored training by academic experts and infrastructure professionals, as well as give them an opportunity to undertake ‘hands-on’ learning by spending time in a private sector Sponsor Organisation. The objectives of the AIFP are to create the conditions and momentum for change in public infrastructure procurement and delivery in selected countries or regions, through partnerships that build capacity and break down any perceived or real barriers in understanding. In addition, the AIFP seeks to establish a network of practitioners across Africa and globally, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, insight, technical expertise and on-the-ground experience between infrastructure market participants, both public and private sector.
