According to a statement published by the British High Commission in Nairobi, the UK will donate £650 million to the African Development Fund (ADF) to finance high-impact, low-cost projects in poor African countries.

The funding covers a range of sectors including electricity, sanitation, creating new jobs through support for small businesses, improving health care, and food security and facilitating the transition to green energy to tackle the adverse effects of climate change.

In the same context, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, on his first visit to sub-Saharan Africa, will kick off today the Railway City regeneration project in Nairobi, a high-tech green development supported by Britain, while confirming his commitment to building mutually profitable partnerships for the future, offering reliable investments without increasing public debts of poor African countries.
