The African Development Bank (AfDB) has approved the Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea (CLSG) electricity networks interconnection project. The total financing by the AfDB (African Development Fund, Fragile States Facility and Nigeria Trust Fund) amounts to US$195 million,

representing roughly 40% of the total project cost. The project will secure power supply for the four Mano River Union member countries, and will be implemented between 2014 and 2017.
