Video: H.E. Elham Ibrahim on discussions at the World Hydropower Congress

H.E. Elham Ibrahim is the African Union Commissioner for Energy and Infrastructure. Speaking at the 2015 World Hydropower Congress in Beijing, she discusses the challenges in bringing electricity to people across Africa.

She says: "In our continent, the centres where you have a lot of the resources may not be where you have the demand. That's why we have to work on a regional scale."

The African Union Commission is an organising partner of the 2017 World Hydropower Congress, which will be hosted in Addis Ababa on 9-11 May 2017. Find out what's on the agenda at the event here.
