The World Bank announced on Thursday that it has approved the sum of 41 million U.S. dollars for the government of Gambia as a contribution to electricity project.
A statement said that the World Bank executive directors have approved the grant to help the West African country in the Electricity Restoration and Modernization Project.
“The project will help improve the operational performance of the Project Implementing Entity and improve the capacity of the Project Implementing Entity to dispatch variable renewable electricity,” World Bank says.
The funding will be disbursed by the International Development Association (IDA), one of the financial branches of World Bank.
