CLDP in Action

November 3, 2014 - November 7, 2014

In early November 2014, CLDP (in partnership with the African Legal Support Facility) brought together a group of international experts to draft and publish a handbook on Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). The handbook is intended to provide an overview of PPAs and the obligations, risks and remedies that are found within them.  The group of experts, all whom contributed their time on a pro-bono basis, included contributors from governments, development banks, private banks and leading international law firms.
