Ma­jor risks to projects in Africa:

RISKSA Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Po­lit­i­cal risks Ex­change risks – deals have to be struc­tured very care­fully to limit the ex­po­sure to for­eign ex­change. Se­cur­ing bonds – this must be done on the govern­ment side. En­vi­ron­men­tal risks – projects have been stopped if they are too en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive. The ‘ soft’ is­sues have be­come hard is­sues. So­cial risks – the is­sue of land and own­er­ship is a very com­pli­cated one in Africa. The 99- year lease has gone some way to al­le­vi­ate these com­pli­ca­tions.
