SAPL ( Shriyai Africa Private Limited ) was set up to cater to the consulting and financial requirements of the African Nations. The main goals of this subsidiary are structured around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations.
Financing needs for sustainable development are enormous. Different estimates of financing needs all confirm that there are large requirements across all critical sectors. And hence, both private and public financing from domestic and international sources are necessary to fill the large financing gap. We can help the governments to draft policies that would create an multi-pronged approach, including: (i) reducing risks by creating an enabling environment; (ii) sharing risks to leverage private resources with public funds; and (iii) restructuring investor incentives.
Shriyai is working on similar lines with some of the South Asian countries and the same approach is also available in Africa. We have seen that there are many interdependencies, synergies and trade-offs across sectors, which affects the gap between investment requirements and financing needs. The private sector consists of a complex web of providers of capital, financial sector instruments (bonds and equities), institutional intermediaries (hedge funds) and end investment users. A thorough study, advisory, and strategic roadmap is required to fulfil those and connect the dots. That is where Shriyai comes in.
One of our main focus is to help build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation in the continent. The other focus areas are sustainable, clean energy and quality healthcare.
