The European Council on Foreign Relations is delighted to host an online public event exploring how Africa’s green energy innovation ecosystems can help reset relations between Africa and Europe.
This reframe can lend focus to European efforts ahead of February’s EU-African Union Summit and provide a new policy lens for the European Green Deal and Global Gateway in Africa. To what extent can the European Green Deal and Global Gateway be shaped to satisfy both European and African interests?
Bringing together two leading EU decision-makers, the debate will explore what we can expect from the Summit and beyond, based on new concepts raised in ECFR’s recently launched report, Gateway to growth: How the European Green Deal can strengthen Africa’s and Europe’s economies.
