This document is designed to facilitate knowledge transfer among World Bank Group staff and clients on how to design and prepare projects that support the development of cross-border power transmission infrastructure within the framework of regional power pooling mechanisms. The “Road Map” section introduces the broad developmental context for the regional power pool initiatives, which the World Bank Group is supporting under the Infrastructure Action Plan. The “Modules” sections then facilitate the transfer of know-how to World Bank Group staff and client country counterparts involved in the design, preparation, and appraisal of lending operations in support of regional energy integration initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially those associated with establishing fledgling power pooling mechanisms for Central, Eastern, Southern, and Western Africa.
