UIA at the East and Central African Cities Development ForumBy Uganda Investment Authority
About the Forum
The East and Central African Region have a huge infrastructure deficit that has been compounded with the rapid rate of urbanisation and reducing municipal financing capacity. The strain on the infrastructure budget has limited municipal financing to operations and maintenance of the current infrastructure stock. The rapid urbanisation therefore calls for more capital investments to enhance livability,efficiency and productivity of regional cities.
The forum presents unique opportunities to all cities in the region (capital and secondary cities) to identify at least three priority infrastructure projects to be presented to invited Development Finance Institutions and international investors. Such projects will include;
- Renewable Energy ( Solar & Waste Energy)
- Market Development etc
