that promotes African integration and intra-African trade and leads to sustainable and inclusive economic growth.
What is PIDA?

The Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) is a strategic initiative developed under the auspices of the African Union (AU), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and AUDA-NEPAD. Its primary objective is to address the regional and intra-continental connectivity challenges in Africa through the development of infrastructure in various sectors, including transport, energy, information and communication technology (ICT), and transboundary water resources.
