Paul Wilson of MCW Consultants Ltd will speak on the rebuilding of Liberia's electricity sector after devastating civil wars.

This presentation will give participants a flavour of what it was like during that period, and the steps taken by the Liberia Government together with the funders to improve the life of Liberians.

Donor funding was difficult to secure for the reconstruction, and funding agencies stipulated various conditions on how the funds were to be used. Even with funds available, there were and are still numerous challenges to overcome.
