African Enterprise Challenge Fund

Volume 477: debated on Friday 20 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what support his Department has provided to the African Enterprise Challenge Fund; and what assessment he has made of its impact on the region. (211795)

The Department for International Development (DFID) is providing £10 million over three years to the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa for the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund. The fund became operational early June 2008 following the recruitment of a fund manager. It is, therefore, too early to assess its impact.
