Agribusiness, Energy, & Infrastructure
60% of the world’s arable land is in Africa —McKinsey&Company
Agribusiness We believe that Africa will soon become the world’s breadbasket and by the end of the 21st century Africa’s land will be exponentially more valuable for agriculture production. We understand that private sector investment is the only engine to ensure Africa is positioned to feed itself and the world. We can assist investors in meeting their agribusiness development goals at every stage of the project development cycle by identifying and implementing economically viable structures to create value and sustainability.
Energy According to the African Development Bank, it is estimated that only 30 percent of Sub-Saharan Africa has access to electricity and only 14 percent in rural areas. We have been working to address Africa’s energy needs for over 50 years, partnering with private and public entities to meet Africa’s growing energy demand. Having served clients developing solar, biomass (utilizing sugar cane, rice husks, and rubber), and municipal solid waste (MSW) projects, renewable and green energy is a focus.
Infrastructure From transport infrastructure to commercial real estate development, we can help address the continent’s infrastructure challenges. We maintain strategic partnerships with construction companies across the continent, serving to accommodate your project implementation requirements, strategic sub-contracting needs, equipment supply interests, and local sourcing of talent.
