Implementing national strategic aid, development, and trade investment in sub- Saharan Africa on the back of new private sector investments and leveraging corporate social responsibility is a growing international trend. International private industries seeking to become involved in the sub-Saharan region will gain from access to existing knowledge, networks, and experience of governments and institutions that have had longterm sub-Saharan involvement, particularly for political access and avoiding common pitfalls. Similarly, a central challenge for sub-Saharan governments is coordination to enable a consistent and balanced private sector investment and associated national returns for critical institutions and infrastructure that stimulate a number of major economic sectors.

Therefore, a two-way communication and understanding between international and sub-Saharan institutions are required at various levels (governments, private sector, etc.) for mutual benefit. This work outlines areas of significant cross-sector collaborative investment opportunities through international private sector entities and notable complexities of agricultural, environmental, economic, and social elements unique to sub-Saharan Africa.
