The High Level Stakeholder Forum (held every 3 years) is one of the key strategic dialogue events organized by the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP). As a multi-stakeholder platform, the AEEP forum brings together high level policy makers, senior private sector, academia and civil society representatives for a cross-sectoral exchange and dialogue.

European Union’s Commissioner Neven Mimica has placed energy on top of the EC agenda, namely energy access, renewable energy and in particular private sector as cornerstones of EU engagement. The African Union Commission has energy as a main focus for economic development boost in the continent. Increased stakeholder engagement and private sector involvement are recognized as fundamental for the achievement of the SE4All and SDG targets for 2030.
