Building on the guidance and recommendations of the CBN, NEPAD has initiated the 5% Agenda, a campaign to increase the allocations of African asset owners to African infrastructure management (AUM) to a more impactful 5% of AUM.

It is foreseen that the roadmap and the campaign will have the following impact:

  1. Unlocking USD 25bn of African institutional savings capital over the next five years to implement regional and domestic infrastructure projects on the continent.
  2. Bringing PIDA projects to financial close for improved access to energy and other infrastructure.
  3. Broadening and deepening the currently shallow African primary and secondary capital markets.
  4. Contributing significantly to regional integration and job creation.
  5. Taking specific, concrete next steps and project suggestions to raise the investment interest of international institutional and non-institutional financiers, who so far have been hesitant to include African infrastructure projects as an asset class in their investment portfolios.
