Governments seek concrete instruments to assist them in raising investments. At the same time, investors need a predictable and robust legal framework for undertaking large scale investments. This requires, on both sides, proper investment planning as well as sound instruments for assessing market risk as well as evaluating policy, legal and regulatory issues. All market actors must be confident that the enabling environment for investment will remain attractive enough. Moreover, governments need to ensure that investment projects are realised and they live up to public policy goals. The EIRA Extended Country Profile for Nigeria aims to assist both the Government and investors in reducing the level of risk in the country’s energy sector and thereby unlocking investment for a sustainable energy future. It addresses a set of specific policy, legal and regulatory risks, in the energy sector of Nigeria, which can be managed and mitigated through effective decision-making.
