Hamid Abdulkareem, Counsel at Three Crowns LLP, will moderate the event.
Infrastructure investment remains a key desideratum for sub-Saharan Africa, and governments and private investors are ploughing significant amounts to fill gaps in key infrastructure classes, including energy, road, rail transportation, and water infrastructure. Where business and huge public works go, disputes inevitably follow. The drive to fill the infrastructure gap in the East African region has been no exception.
This webinar will highlight the triggers for current and future energy and infrastructure-related disputes in the region, including climate change, the energy transition, and state v state competition for exploitation of shared natural resources. The faculty will discuss the trends observed in the resolution of energy and infrastructure-related disputes in the region thus far, including such elements as the preferred methods of dispute resolution and favoured arbitral seats. Finally, the faculty will offer recommendations for policy makers and practitioners alike on proactive and effective dispute management.
