All SADC Member States are eligible for PPDF financing as long as the proposed activity is intended to support regional infrastructure development in the energy, transport, water resources, ICT, TFCAs, and other areas not falling within the scope of these sectors but identified as of regional significance in the SADC infrastructure sector plans. The RIDMP will be used to identify the region’s priorities.
The following entities will be eligible:
- Governments of SADC Member States and their agencies;
- Regional Institutions promoted by Governments of SADC Member States;
A private sector applicant may not apply for funding under the PPDF. However, projects proposed by private sector organisations, and involving the participation of the public sector (Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs)) would be eligible for financing under the PPDF on the condition that the applicant has a letter of support from the respective government’s representative to be attached to the application.
Project proposals can be promoted by two or more eligible entities. However, only one of these entities will vest the role of the applicant and the other(s), will play the role of partner organisation(s).
