The DRC government has decided to recruit a new private-sector partner to develop a smaller, 4,800MW version of the Inga 3 hydro project on the Congo River. The decision is part of a new roadmap for the project discussed at a two-day workshop on the development of Inga 3 held in Abidjan on 13-14 January, with the African Development Bank (AfDB) and other financial partners. Discussions included a review of the project’s status, demand projections and the planned public-private partnership to develop it.
