AFD local office in Accra is a team of 17 professionals originating and managing a portfolio of development projects (loans and grants) implemented by the Government of Ghana, Ghanaian State-Owned Enterprises, and other Ghanaian counterparts (banks, NGOs, research centers, etc.). AFD started its activities in Ghana in 1985 and has since then committed close to EUR 1.5bn for the financing of strategic infrastructures (energy, transport) and socio-economic projects (private sector financing, sustainable cities, agriculture) in Ghana.

Access to reliable and clean electricity has been at the heart of AFD’s mandate for the energy sector. Supporting the Ghanaian government’s energy policy, particularly in search of a low-carbon development trajectory, both in terms of production and transmission of electricity, remains a priority for AFD. Major initiatives currently supported by AFD in this sector are (i) the rehabilitation of the Kpong hydroelectric power station by the Volta River Authority (project to be completed by Mid-2020), (ii) the strengthening of Ghana’s electricity transport network owned by the Ghana Grid Company and its regional integration (ongoing), and (iii) the financing of small to medium scale renewable energy and energy efficiency projects through credit lines and technical assistance support to local financial institutions (starting). While maintaining the same areas of intervention, AFD also wishes to renew its activities in Ghana, putting emphasis on the promotion of gender equality and adaptation and mitigation of the effects of climate change, in line with the SDG agenda.
