Average: 3.5 (2 votes)

The NEPAD Agency has partnered with Australian Aid in an Infrastructure Skills for Development (IS4D) Initiative, to build human capacity for the effective implementation of regional infrastructure projects.

IS4D targets professionals in public sector agencies, from all over Africa, involved in delivering priority African infrastructure projects. The “on-the-job” training allows participants to achieve project management competencies necessary to fast-track the development and delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects they are working on. 

IS4D is an essential component for the implementation of the Programme for Infrastructure Development for Africa (PIDA) which promotes the development of high priority, regional infrastructure across the four sectors – Energy, Transport, Trans-boundary Water and ICT.

The Community of Practice provides IS4D participants and alumni a work space for (e-) learning, mentoring and cross-border collaboration.
