The main objective of the present assignment is to perform a diagnostic review of the electricity sector of Sudan both from financial and operational perspective.

The project is organized in two distinct tasks:

Task 1: The  purpose of this task is to collate financial data and develop a model to identify financial flows and subsidies and their drivers, review policies and plans and establish investment needs, identify options for reducing costs and for funding the quasi-deficit and carry out scenario analysis on options for meeting sectorial objectives.

Task 2: The purpose of this task is to prepare the Electricity Sector Recovery Plan that will identify the major challenges of the Sudanese electricity sector from both operational and financial perspective and propose possible solutions for addressing them. The Electricity Sector Recovery Plan shall include measures to financially restore and sustain the electricity sector and to create the conditions for enabling the environment for increased public and private investments. It will address issues related to financial recovery (in the short, medium and long term) and annual fiscal gaps, and identify the right mix of institutional changes, policy and structural reforms, subsidy interventions, investment infusions, and efficiency gains that would help bridge the identified financial gaps. - Bottom info
