Efficiency Gap

  Africa already devotes significant resources to infrastructure, but not all of those resources are being effectively used. Large sums are lost to inefficiency. By comparing Africa with international best practice, AICD quantified the major inefficiencies and identified policy measures to redress them. Key measures include prioritizing budget allocations, raising budget execution, improving revenue collection, reducing overstaffing, increasing cost recovery, ensuring adequate maintenance, and reducing distribution losses. Those steps could cut Africa’s infrastructure spending requirements by $17 billion each year.
