ReGrow West Africa partnership becomes a Clinton Global Initiative commitment

RESOLVE President and CEO Stephen D’Esposito joined Chelsea Clinton and other leaders at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting in New York on Sept. 27 to announce a new CGI Commitment to Action, “ReGrow West Africa: Post-Ebola Private Sector Recovery.”

ReGrow West Africa was selected for its “exemplary approach to addressing a critical challenge.”

The Ebola public health crisis in West Africa crippled the economies of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. The withdrawal of private sector investment in these countries has led to huge losses of employment, income and government tax revenue.
   
RESOLVE and ReGrow’s implementing partners, including the German Development Agency, Cordaid, Chevron, the TAIA Peace Foundation, the Sierra Leone Investment and Export Promotion Agency, and leaders from the Ebola Private Sector Mobilization Group, will support the recovery and development of the private sector in the three affected countries by building public-private partnerships to overcome early development hurdles that block viable projects.

GCI, established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, is an initiative of the Clinton Foundation that convenes global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world's most pressing challenges.
