7th PIDA Week Concept Note

7th PIDA Week Concept Note

PIDA Week has evolved and grown to become the flagship advocacy and marketing event for the PIDA programme and specifically projects in need of financing. The format of the event provides an opportunity to engage and exchange information on PIDA and infrastructure development in general. PIDA Week also considers the mandate of AUDA-NEPAD for programme delivery across various sectors underpinned by infrastructure. It is positioned to deliver value internally and externally by promoting a multi-sectoral ‘integrated corridor approach’ that links all sectors to infrastructure development and stimulates spatial economic development along the PIDA corridors.

Considering the lack of resilience as demonstrated by COVID-19, the 7th PIDA week brings together partners to engage in thought partnership on building and sustaining resilience in Africa through infrastructure. The 7th PIDA Week 2021will be a hybrid virtual and physical event with the theme “Putting Africa on a firm footing for recovery, growth, and resilience through Infrastructure”
