The AIFP is looking for infrastructure practitioners from African governments, with 3 – 5 years’ experience, who are committed to making their country better, energized by problem-solving, and willing to catalyze change within their organizations.
Fellows will take part in a unique training initiative with other African civil servants over 3 months in Paris, France. They will share experiences and learning from PPP experts at one of the leading academic institutes in the world, Ecole des Ponts Paris Tech.
The fellowship program is organized in English and French, tailored to the needs of your country, and your individual experience in infrastructure procurement and delivery. The intensive coursework in infrastructure procurement is coupled with up to two-months placement in a private sector company and/or a multilateral development bank’s infrastructure team. We will also provide you the opportunity to demonstrate to your peers that your abilities are aligned with international PPP best practices by earning the APMG Certification CP3P.
To be considered as a candidate, your administration must recommend you.
AIFP Fellows will graduate with a deep understanding of procurement, governance and the role of the private sector in infrastructure projects. This knowledge will enable you to create better and more sustainable infrastructure, from strategic planning phase through to operations and maintenance, in rapidly growing African countries.
You will also get access to the AIFP Alumni Network and get ongoing support for 12 months following the program, including twice-yearly AIFP related events hosted by the Global Infrastructure Hub and our partners.
