6 1.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) has a unique mandate within the UN system. It provides investment capital and technical support to both public and private sector. In Tanzania, UNCDF is implementing a Local Finance Initiative (LFI) Programme in partnership with the Prime Minister s Office Ministry of al Administration and Local Governments (PMO- RALG). The objective of the LFI programme is to promote Local Economic Development through investments (small and medium size infrastructure projects) that are transformative in the local economy. The LFI approach is applied to a variety of investment modalities including structured project finance, Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) finance, and public private partnerships. The goal of LFI is to advance economic development at both the national and district levels, engage private sector financial institutions, and stimulate the identification, development, and financing of projects. The LFI technical team in Tanzania is involved in the project development and financing stages in support of both public and private project developers. Part of the intervention is to support prospective commercially viable projects to be investment ready/de-risk so that they are attractive to private sector lenders and investors preferable at the local level. This annual report provides information about the programme implementation and progress for the period from July 2013 to June The report presents the expected outcomes, annual targets, lessons learned and forward looking discussions. The pictorial presentation in section 1.1 describes the LFI approach while section 1.2 shows the status of LFI Projects. 4 LFI - T Annual Progress Report 2012/13

11 2.0 ANNUAL PROGRESS DESCRIPTION Based on the programme implementation for the period from July 2013 to June 2014, this sectionprovides a description of targets and progress of the five programme expected outcomesas at 30th June Outcome One: Improved capacities of Tanzania public and private project developers to identify and develop small-to-medium sized infrastructure projects essential for inclusive LED. Targets Processes, methodologies and enabling tools are designed to identify and develop infrastructure projects for LED Progress - The LFI technical team has developed 5 new project development and finance toolkits that were integrated into the LFI technical team s internal and external project development processes (Project Identification and Development Guidance; LFI Project Screening Guide; Project Introduction Sheet; LFI Process Flow and Due Diligence Methodology, and Individual Project Management Tool). These are in addition to the energy and agricultural tool kits that were developed and integrated during 2012/2013 time period. - These tools have been developed based on the team s assessment of both the supply and demand sides and the, understanding of the challenges and opportunities of key stakeholders. LFI - T Annual Progress Report 2012/13 9

12 Targets Proof of concept demonstration LED projects identified, developed and structured Progress - 5 Tier 1 projects are in advanced stage to reach financial closure in the next 3 to 9 months from now. - 4 Tier 2 projects are currently being supported by the LFI Programme Tier 3 projects currently being supported by the LFI Programme. - Overall, the 25 projects are in the LFI pipeline and are distributed into 5 main sub-sectors: 3 in agro-processing, 16 in energy (due to partnership with REA), 3 in community service delivery, 2 in telecommunication, and 1 in industrial-manufacturing. Further classification reveals that out of the 25 projects, 6 projects are purely implemented by public institutions and the remaining 19 are mainly implemented by private developers. - During the year ended 30 June 2014, LFI-T team visited Iringa, Mafinga, Ludewa, Same, Kilolo, Ileje, Mbozi, Mbeya and Njombe districts to ascertain the real progress of projects and situation on the ground compared to how it has been documented. Also the team visited several times Kibaha Town Council s project site and office in Pwani region. - LFI-T team continue to provide technical expertise to local project developers including (identification, screening, selection, due diligence, review of key project documents, review and development of business plans and financial models, TORs, SPV governance structure, investment documents, Bank Offer Memos, etc. - $100,000 UNCDF grant approved to support EA Power Ltd, $50,000 requested for Lupali Project), and $100,000 requested for Lung ali Natural Resources Company Ltd (Maguta Project). - During the current period, a similar grant facility will be sought for other projects in good progress such as Kibaha Bus Terminal and Modern Market projects and Kalemawe Dam. - The involvement of LFI in infrastructure projects is expected to unlock at least $25.7 million from the financial sector and $ 3 million grants from donor funds. Only Tier 1 projects have been considered in estimating the level of finance to be unlocked hence the impact will be more as projects in Tier 2 and Tier 3 upgrade. 10 LFI - T Annual Progress Report 2012/13

13 Targets Local capacity established to enabled government and private sector to identify and develop infrastructureprojects Progress - The 25infrastructure projects supported by LFI have offered the forum and platform to local public and private project developers, Technical Service Providers (TSPs), and partner agencies to learn project finance and risk mitigation strategies through Learn by Doing. Specific meetings with local TSPs and REA were held to share LFI approach and instruments. - Involvement of local commercial banks has enhanced their knowledge in infrastructure project finance which is a new approach and market segment in Tanzania banking industry leaders representing donors, Private Sector Foundation, Local Government Officials and project developers etc. attended the LFI retreat in Zanzibar in February 2014 which was used as a platform to create awareness to key stakeholders - LFI presented the program, the LFI approach and examples of LGA projects in our pipeline to about 600 local government officials including Prime MinisterHonorable PeterPinda and other senior government officials during ALAT Annual General Meeting attanga in May local government officials attended a separate technical session focused on knowledge sharing, new approaches and sources of finance for public infrastructure facilities during ALAT annual general meeting in Tanga in May Collaboration with national agencies such REA of the energy sector has improved local capacity of the private sector to develop infrastructure projects, specifically collaboration on the list of energy projects provided by REA. - LFI has sharedproject identification and development toolkits for various sub-sectors in stakeholders meetings with TSPs, Rural Energy Agency, Project Developers and commercial bank officials. - Project Finance Technical workshop: As a result of several meetings with key local stakeholders, LFI programme is planning to conduct a project finance training workshop in the 4th quarter of 2014 to attract a minimum of 50 stakeholder institutions to share lessons learned and risk mitigation strategies. The targeted stakeholders are local commercial bankers, investors, pension funds, project developers, local technical service providers, partner government agencies, select local government agencies and development partners. - The project finance workshop is expected to result into a positive replication effect in implementing LFI Programme going forward. The successful implementation of Kibaha Town Council projects will set key learning lessons in terms of best approaches in financing local government projects. Further, support given to private project developers especially in hydro projects pose a number of opportunities for replication in other parts of the country considering the efforts in place to boost the state of electrification in Tanzania.

15 Outcome Two: Increased ability and willingness of the domestic financial sector to provide financing for small to medium-sized LED infrastructure projects. Targets Processes, methodologies and enabling tools are designed to finance LED projects Local capacity established to increase ability of private sector to identify and finance LED projects Progress - Strategic Partnershipwith local commercial banks (CRDB, TIB, Barclays, ECO Bank, Stanbic) have resulted in sharing information and working together toward financing infrastructure projects. The LFI risk mitigation strategies for local projects minimizes the project risks and the levels of due diligence that lender have to do and make them attractive to local commercial banks. - Commercializing Public Serving: Specifically, LFI is currently collaborating with Kibaha Town Council and TIB to finance two infrastructure projects (Modern Market & Bus Terminal) while the EA Power hydro project is expecting financial support from Stanbic bank. - LFI presented at technical forums for lenders, investors, technical service providers and developers at the following technical forums: ENCLUDE and REA, Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) and School of Engineering University of Dar es Salaam, and Power Africa Conference in Dar es Salaam. - On more than 6 site visits, LFI team shared individual approaches and solutions to attendees who are the owner-beneficiaries, owner developers and Community NGO s and local government. - Power point presentations, guides and toolkits distributed during training sessions. In addition, the developers and local technical service providers have learned by doing during development stage. LED Projects financed in Tanzania - See Tier 1 advanced projects. - LFI is continuing consultations with the 5 local commercial banks about the LFI s development process and financial advisory services provided to project developers (de-risking) that has resulted in managing the pre-conceived barrier about the risks to project Outcome Three: Improved Tanzania business-enabling environment for domestic resource mobilization for inclusive LED ensuring integrating into existing government processes, programs and structures. Targets Improved national policies, legal and regulatory frameworks to encourage domestic resource mobilization Improved how to and operational frameworks for inclusive LED project development and finance Progress - Domestic resource mobilization efforts have resulted in collaboration with the DANIDA s Local Investment Climate programme in areas such improving local business environment and infrastructure financing for Dodoma and Kigoma regions. - The LFI-T technical and non-technical brochures have been shared to other UN agencies and development partners during one-to-one meetings - The LFI technical team has received training on project identification, development, financing, project management, resource mobilization and LFI programmatic components - LFI review process has resulted in projects re-working poor quality business plans and financial models earlier completed by local TSP to suits the lenders requirements. Training material integrated into discussion with partners and project developers,tsp s, TIB, and multiple consultants. LFI - T Annual Progress Report 2012/13 13

16 Outcome Four: Increased interest and support of the development community for Tanzania inclusive LED project development finance. Targets Scaling up and replication of LED programme in Tanzania by other development partners Progress - The partnership between UNCDF and UNIDO will support 3 hydro power projects in Tanzania whereby LFI will prepare the projects for financing and UNIDO will provide electrical mechanical equipment. - The partnership with UN Volunteers programmewhich is working with the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA) will support 2 to 5 infrastructure projects. Increased awareness and capacity of DFIs and Donors to provide effective interventions for LED - The LFI programme has presented the LFI approach, projects being supported, lesson learned, and best practices on local development finance, project identification and development guidelines to Development Partners such as EU Delegation, DANIDA, SDC and SIDA. - LFI is participating in development community forums including such as the energy development partners working group comprising of representatives of many DFIs and Donors. Outcome Five: Increased effectiveness and leverage of limited public sector funds, both of the host government and development partners, by mobilizing significant levels of private sector finance for catalytic LED projects. Targets Set up, operate and maintain the LFI-T Fund and other credit enhancement structures as required Attract institutional investor finance to LED projects through the funding of project development and credit enhancement Progress - LFI programme is part of the UNCDF HQ efforts to establish Resilience Booster Fund. This fund will have credit enhancements and project guarantee funding for projects in the LFI pipeline for the period from 2015 to among 5 of the Tier 1 projects has attracted institutional finance investors.

19 4.0 LESSONS LEARNED In this year of reporting LFI- T has documented the following as major Lessons learned: 1. Need for a reliable Technical Assistance funding source (feasibility studies and credit enhancement mechanisms) remain a priority for the success of the projects. Having reliable access to fund feasibility studies and credit enhancement remain critical to the success of the projects and to maintain the interest and assuring the cooperation of private sector entities such as lenders and project sponsors. Feasibility studies are costly and typically prepared by a credible independent third party for the purpose of confirming the technical or economic feasibility of the specific projects. The studies are critical in this process because they often require specific approaches to project risk mitigation and they become part of the supporting documentation package when accessing funds from local commercial lenders or investors. 2. Project finance for local development requires enhanced capacity development for key stakeholders including commercial banks. The LFI team needs to continue to provide training of public and private stakeholders and increased government capacity to facilitate finance, project development, and business-enabling environments. As noted before, LFI presents a significant departure from the operational modalities and approaches of the existing development and private sector finance practices as well as the grants for local governments as practiced by UNCDF in Uganda and Tanzania in the past. Our interactions with local commercial bankers, we learned that most bankers do not have the experience or knowledge to implement project finance transactions because they are used to trade and balance sheet finance approach which as noted is different from the LFI approach. 3. Use of UNCDF own technical staff instead of consultants for programme implementation. In 2013, UNCDF hired its own technical staff based in Tanzania to run the activities of the LFI programme instead of international service providers/consultants. This experience has shown that it is the best way to assure sustainability of the programme and if needed, only use consultants in targeted interventions to supplement but also work hand in hand with the local UNCDF team for knowledge transfer. 4. Financial advisory service is a critical LFI service that is required for projects to reach and cross the last mile to financial close. Providing technical assistance funding alone is not sufficient because we have learned that if not properly coordinated through the project life cycle projects can still not reach financial close due to lack of financing structuring skills. In terms of the infrastructure project and finance process, the LFI team is continuing to build the development required experience in structuring and financing infrastructure projects, both in their complex structures and in the time required to reach financial closing.
