The actions/contributions will be presented at the Second Stakeholder Forum of the AEEP in Milan and ultimately culminate into an Action Programme for the Achievement of the AEEP 2020 Targets. By participating in the Call, you — or your organization — will have the opportunity to contribute to the initiation of a new Action Programme on energy between Africa and the EU.
The 2020 Targets are:
