'Building State Capacity in Africa' aims to share some of the lessons for the design and 5/5(1).

One of Ghana’s paramount constraints to economic growth is the unreliable and inadequate supply of electric power. The country has 2, mega-watts (MW) of installed generation capacity, including MW of generation from independent power producers (IPPs).

But actual availability hardly exceeds MW. This serves a population of 25 million that is growing at %. Building the requisite capacities turns out to be a formidable challenge. For these reasons, enhancing the capacity of African states has risen to the top of the continent’s development agenda.

Conceptualizing Capacity Building Capacity building can be defined straightforwardly as a process for strengthening the management and governance of an organization so that it can effectively achieve its objectives and fulfill its mission.1,2 We can, however, add depth to the definition by broadening what is meant by capacity.

South Africa has long been something of an anomaly in the African power sector. Its huge coal reserves, developed under Eskom, have enabled the country to develop generating capacity of 52GW.

But they also left the country overwhelmingly dependent on coal-fired plants, augmented mainly by the nuclear reactors at Koeberg. Power Africa provides capacity building to advance the transition from unsolicited proposals to competitive tendering of IPP projects through a transparent procurement process.
