The 27th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) dubbed as the African COP, held from 06 until 20 November 2022 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. It offered a stage for climate and energy actors, along with the government officials, non-government organisations, and world leaders to address and showcase global climate action and reaffirm their commitment to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
On 06 December 2022, AEEP convened the 8th Energy Talks where panelists discussed the key energy outcomes from the COP27 and the opportunities they bring to recalibrate the energy partnership between Africa and Europe towards accelerated implementation.
The panel featured representatives from European Commission (EC), African Union Commission (AUC), IRENA, African Climate Foundation (ACF), REN21, Africa-Europe Foundation (AEF) and Senegal.
