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 two day Forum will be split into day one, 16 May being a technical thematic stakeholder day deepening on Energy Access, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and Energy Security, and day two, 17 May will be dedicated to high level delegates and stakeholders. 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 & finance industry, the private sector, academia, the civil society and the media. The conference is expected to result in an Africa-EU Energy Stakeholder Forum Communiqué, launch a “Mapping of Initiatives and Programmes in Africa Report”, release of an “Intermediate AEEP Status Report”, and develop a stakeholders' call-for-action.
