Malawi gets US$3.04m grants from AfDB for Kholombidzo power feasibility studies

The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group has approved a grant amounting to US $3.04 million to finance the Kholombidzo Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) Feasibility Studies in Malawi.

The Government of Malawi will contribute US $0.23 million (7%) of the total study cost of US $3.27 million.

The  grant aims to produce a full bankable feasibility study for the future development of a power generation project to contribute to the expansion of electricity generating capacity in Malawi, which would ultimately help to address electricity shortages and enable the delivery of reliable energy and electricity access expansion in Malawi.

The study is consistent with the objectives of the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy II (MGDS II) which emphasizes the importance of putting in place a foundation for long-term economic growth through improved infrastructure and investment climate.
