The African Legal Support Facility signs MoU with IP3
Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, September 9, 2016 – The African Legal Support Facility (ALSF) and the Institute for Public Private Partnership (IP3) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enhance cooperation related to capacity building services offered in African countries. 

Cooperation between the ALSF and IP3 will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and information exchange on matters concerning legal skills needed for African countries to enhance their capacity in international transactions with international investors.

Both institutions will, through the partnership, also develop joint programs and activities, such as capacity building initiatives intended to promote and strengthen legal, technical and financial expertise within African countries.

“This partnership will help us design and deliver targeted training interventions on the ground to address country specific capacity gaps in the area of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) that will be identified in conjunction with African governments,” said the ALSF Director, Stephen Karangizi.

“We look forward to collaborating closely with the ALSF in building the capacity of African governments especially their attempts to create legal frameworks and enabling environments that will create a climate that is conducive to investment in social and infrastructure PPP projects, stated David Baxter, IP3 Executive Director.

Together, the ALSF and IP3 bring essential expertise to provide legal advice in contract negotiations in a variety of sectors. This valuable technical experience will be shared between both institutions who are jointly committed to undertaking new initiatives.
