Inaugurated in 2015 as the key forum to bring together stakeholders in the implementation of the PIDA, annual thematic PIDA weeks have been hosted by African capitals. The last physical event was the 5th PIDA week in Nov 2019 in Cairo while the 6th PIDA week was a hybrid event hosted by South Africa. The 7th PIDA Week will be hosted by Kenya, initially planned from 6th to 10th Dec 2021 is now planned for a Q1 2022 hybrid format around the theme: “Putting Africa on a firm footing for recovery, growth, and resilience through Infrastructure”.

The TA to AU-ISM is supporting the organisation of sessions towards financing of projects and reinforcing the contribution of PIDA projects to African economies particularly through enhancing the participation of SMEs.
