Description :
The Belgian-Burkinabe bilateral cooperation programme for the period 2019-2023 aims to "contribute to the inclusive and sustainable economic and social development of the Central East region" through an integrated approach targeting : (1) the the fabric of SME TPE ; (2) the provision of financial and non-financial services ; (3) a favourable business environment and (4) improved access to structuring investments by economic actors in the region.

Energy and connectivity solutions have been identified as structuring investment sectors, important to creating an environment conducive to economic and sustainable development. I IED is thus mandated to carry out an analysis of the supply and demand of energy services and internet connectivity in the Central East region, and to identify investment opportunities for private sector players.
Description of the Actual Services Provided IED is responsible for carrying out:
(1) mapping of private and public actors in the energy and connectivity fields
(2) identifying existing potential and prospects for changing demand that may attract private investors to the various municipalities
(3) identifying the blocking factors that explain the low presence of private companies in the supply of energy and connectivity in the region and proposing solutions
(4) proposals for energy and connectivity solutions tailored to the East Central Region and estimation of potential and success factors

Main final deliverables: an energy report and a connectivity report.
