#2 Ways to Minimize the Currency and Land Related Concerns for Public Private Partnership, PPP, Projects in Ethiopia(More So in Africa)?

Apart from regulation, currency and land right issues are two of the biggest concerns for private investors in infrastructure developments in Ethiopia and so much so in Africa.
In Ethiopia for example, there are projects initiated to be developed on a public private partnership, PPP, business model where the private sector will finance, build and operate for a concession period of 20 to 25 years. The recent Scaling Solar tenders could be good examples. Independent Power Producers, IPPs, will generate energy and sell to the public entity with a pre-agreed sales agreement usually called Power Purchase agreement, PPA, for the energy and power sector. The tenders put a requirement for Special purpose Vehicle, SPV, projects to have a local content in the form of shares and using local resources in order to win the projects.

(A high Level PPP Development Assessment Outcome)
Public private partnerships have become new normal in today’s business landscape across many countries. If properly managed, governments could benefit in mobilizing financial resources, technical knowhow, innovation and efficiency gains from the private sector in the delivery of public goods and services by effectively partnering with them.
Since 2017, Ethiopia has publicly announced that it would leverage PPPs as one of its strategic tools in its development agenda. The accompanying thesis make an assessment of the theoretical and historical developments of PPPs in general and its stage of development and application in the Ethiopian context. 
In the assessment, it is learned that the government of Ethiopia has committed resources by formulating a PPP policy, enacting a separate PPP law (Proclamation no 1076/2018) and outlining the institutional roles and responsibilities albeit an early development stages demanding further clarity and maturity.

Ethiopia Inaugurated the First Waste to Energy Conversion Power Plant

The Waste to energy conversion facility has 25 MW capacity and will produce 185 Giga Watts Hour (GWh) of electricity per year, crushing 1,400 tons of solid waste on a daily basis (thereporterethiopia, 2018). The facility's successful inauguration has multiple implications and benefits to the country.
The straight forward benefit of the power plant is the additional capacity built at the heart of the main load center pushing the renewable energy resources portfolio reserve of the country in multiple directions. 
The second benefit is that Ethiopia largely depends on hydro power to drive the burgeoning economy and its energy security is often times perceived as at stake in times of drier weather.  Slowly but surely, the energy supply mix or diversity is shifting, Repi being the latest addition to Ethiopian Electric Power's, EEP's,  power capacity to safeguard the economy in such unfavorable circumstances.
