EU-Africa collaborate on sustainable energy and climate change

At the 'Focus on Energy' side event during COP21 in Paris, EU Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, has today signed seven joint declarations to reinforce cooperation on sustainable energy and climate change. The countries concerned are Nigeria, Benin, Senegal, Kenya, Madagascar and Cameroon, as well as the Indian Ocean Commission. Commissioner Mimica said: "These declarations are a major milestone in the path to achieving universal access to energy through the development of renewable sources. They will bring us closer to our partners, reinforcing political dialogue and regional cooperation, which is essential in this task".  With today's, a total of 20 declarations have been signed since the UN Climate Summit of September 2014. The Commissioner also announced the launch of the operations that will take place under the Electrifi initiative, presented in May this year. Electrifi counts on a budget of €270 million until 2017 to leverage investments on sustainable energy.
