AfricaHardball: Political risk perspectives for Africa’s energy industries

A moderated roundtable discussion on political risks and governance issues that affect power and renewables projects and investment decisions.

Since 2006, CbI and African Energy's AfricaHardball has provided a private forum for frank discussion of critical political issues, bringing expert analysts together with government and industry operators.

Proceedings are held under the Chatham House rule and chaired by CbI and African Energy’s Jon Marks.

The afternoon starts at 12h30 with a networking lunch shared with delegates attending the fifth annual Africa Investment Exchange: Power & Renewables meeting.

AfricaHardball is split into two sessions:

13h30 to 15h00, Project risks, politics and governance – An expert panel of analysts will provide opening comments on a series of predetermined questions, with the chair encouraging comment and questions after each contribution.

15h15 to 16h30, Scenario building – to focus thinking and potentially to uncover unexpected conclusions on the issues raised in the first session. Hardball aims to illuminate delegates’ understanding of complex situations and even – if  the debate is particularly rewarding – draw-up practical policy recommendations.

Coffee will be served in the room between sessions
