Document Details:

This toolkit draws together resource material that has been developed and used primarily to facilitate wideranging dialogue between World Bank Group staff and their counterparts from the West Africa Power Pool (WAPP) organization; the original purpose was to inform the design of the WAPP Adaptable Program Lending Facility as the umbrella under which several credits have been put in place by the International Development Association (IDA) to cofinance cross-border power transmission infrastructure among the member countries of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The purpose of the toolkit is to facilitate knowledge transfer among World Bank Group staff and clients on how to design and prepare projects that support the development of cross-border power transmission infrastructure within the framework of regional power pooling mechanisms.
