Late Stage Power Sector Transaction Support 3. Small-Scale Power Projects and Rural Electrification/Mini-Grids Support 4. Power Sector Regulatory and Institutional Strengthening and Policy Reform 5. Power Sector Training, Mentoring, Networking and Internships 6. Power Sector Risk Mitigation Strategies 7.

The GDAs formed as a result of this Addendum are envisioned to be inclusive of multiple partners, i.e., businesses, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government institutions, foundations, who are working within sub-Saharan Africa. The GDAs are also envisioned to serve as a way to enable programmatic coordination across many organizations that are involved in facilitating the generation of new power sources.
