The conference programme will be structured around plenary sessions, to allow for linkages between sessions and active participation of all delegates.
The conference will comprise four themes, spread over two days (one theme per half-day):
• Africa renewable energy potential, including hydropower development in Ethiopia
• Regional cooperation for water and energy, including transboundary issues.
• Sustainability and good practices

Exchanges between participants will be encouraged throughout the conference, to provide regional perspectives, experiences and responses that are pertinent to the themes.
The conference will be preceded by an evening reception on 30th March 2011 and concluded by an evening event on 1st April. A banquet will take place on the evening of 31st March, between the two days of the conference.
