The AIFP is looking for infrastructure practitioners from African governments, with at least 3 years’ experience in their countries’ PPP infrastructure development.
Fellows will take part in a unique training initiative with other African civil servants 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 ParisTech.
Organized in English and French, the intensive coursework in infrastructure procurement is coupled with a placement in a private sector company and/or a development bank’s infrastructure team. Moreover, the fellows have the opportunity to demonstrate to their peers that their abilities are aligned with international PPP best practices by earning the APMG Certification CP3P.
To be considered as a candidate, you must obtain the endorsement of your organization and upload your CV.
- Next session of two months to be held in October-November 2021
- Recruitment period open until the 15th of May 2021
- Submit your application right above in the application form
The AIFP will provide participating civil servants with tailored training by academic experts and infrastructure professionals, as well as give them an opportunity to undertake ‘hands-on’ learning in a private sector Sponsor Organization.
They will also join a network of practitioners across Africa and globally, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, insight, technical expertise and on-the-ground experience between infrastructure market participants, in both the public and private sectors.
AIFP fellows will graduate with a deep understanding of procurement, governance and private sector’s role in infrastructure projects. This knowledge will enable you to create better and more sustainable infrastructure, from the strategic planning phase to operations and maintenance, in rapidly growing African countries. You will also get access to the AIFP Alumni Network to stay in contact and share the best practices and advice with the other practitioners.
