Global Initiatives

Worldwide Hydrocarbons Assistance

CLDP is serving as a key partner for the Energy Governance and Capacity Initiative (EGCI) – State Department-led multi-agency effort to provide a range of technical and capacity building assistance to the host governments of countries on the verge of becoming major oil and gas producers. EGCI’s core objective is to help these countries establish the capacity to manage their resource revenues wisely and to manage their resource endowments in a manner that maximizes value and transparency. As one of the U.S. agencies providing technical assistance under EGCI, CLDP leverages the expertise of its lawyers and experts to help countries establish commercial law frameworks that incorporate the best practices in contracting, accounting and taxation that are essential to attracting foreign investment in a country’s hydrocarbon sector.

CLDP in Action

Cover - Understanding Power Project Procurement

Understanding Power Project Procurement

As part of the "Understanding Series" of reference handbooks published by Power Africa, in September 2017, CLDP (in partnership with the African Legal Support Facility) brought together a group of world-class legal, policy and regulatory experts to draft a guide on power project procurement. The new handbook, Understanding Power Project Procurement, is the culmination of extensive consultations with public and private sector stakeholders from Africa and the United States. The handbook is intended to serve as a practical resource for decision-makers on the policy and strategy behind the procurement of power projects.
