Moving Europe and Africa towards more Common Ground on Climate and Energy

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Sep 12, 2023 | Policy Center for the New South

Ahead of COP28, the AU-EU partnership can help drive forward the global climate change and energy transition agendas. Alfonso Medinilla and Afaf Zarkik and Larabi Jaïdi from the Policy Center for the New South argue that a fruitful collaboration between the two continents starts with finding common ground, the acknowledgement of tensions over decarbonisation, and focusing on delivering rapid results and communicating more effectively on their progress. African and European representatives should avoid the trap of ‘policy signalling’ or ideal-type solutions, and expedite results on climate finance, energy and industrialisation, as well as communicate more effectively on their progress.
