Afrobarometer Network and the University of Nairobi’s Institute for Development Studies (IDS), will launch the second Africa release of Afrobarometer data on improving infrastructure for growth and livelihoods in Africa. The data will provide insights on availability of electricity grid, piped water, paved/tarred roads, sewerage system and cell phone services. The release event will take place at 10.00 am, on Thursday, January 14, 2016 at the Nairobi Safari Club, Lilian Towers, University Way.

Based on interviews with 52,735 citizens in 32 African countries, these new continental statistics on citizens’ perceptions on infrastructure will be of particular interest to policy makers and activists for setting development policy agenda.  

Professor Winnie Mitullah, Director, Institute for Development Studies will present the survey results.
