Abstract:

 

The Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) is a joint long-term framework for strategic dialogue between Africa and the EU aimed at sharing knowledge, setting political priorities and developing joint programmes on key energy issues and challenges of the 21st century. As AEEP is only a platform for political dialogue, it has set up AEEP Action Groups (AGs) in order to undertake the tasks set out. They are therefore the core implementation actors based on thematic topics and work streams. This side event aims to establish a roadmap for the AGs to mobilize respective constituencies in order to shape and contribute to the monitoring of thematic work streams; identify specific financing mechanisms for supporting the activities of the AGs; draw synergies for the facilitation of the partnership; and allow for more inclusion but also flexible, and not fixed membership to the Action Groups.
