Second Stakeholder Forum of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP)
The Second Stakeholder Forum of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP), will be hosted jointly by the Italian Government, the African Union Commission (AUC) and the European Union Commission (EC).
The Forum will build on the first stakeholder meeting held in Cape Town, South Africa in 2012. It envisages participation of African and European ministers, AU and EU Commissioners, and more than 300 other high-level participants representing policy-makers, regional institutions, international organisations, the banking and finance industry, the private sector, academia, the civil society and the media.
Coming at a time of increased international attention on energy in Africa (including post-COP21 and announcement of SDG7), the main objectives of the second AEEP Stakeholder Forum are to:
- sharpen the role and contributions of a wide range of stakeholders
- enhance the engagement of non-state actors
- provide a framework for dialogue
