Engaging with the Africa Renewable Energy Initiative: An Independent Civil Society AREI Monitoring Framework

The Africa Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI) aims to transform the African power sector by harnessing the continent’s huge, but yet largely untapped, renewable energy potential. Civil society organisations (CSOs) are an essential part of this process, as they can take on various roles to benefit the initiative.

The paper – published by Germanwatch together with ACSEA, Brot für die Welt und Power Shift Africa – describes civil society engagement with AREI, outlines an independent monitoring framework for AREI and presents experiences of other civil society monitoring efforts of international initiatives.
