The African Energy Policy Research Network (AFREPREN/FWD) is a regional organization with the key objective of strengthening the continentís research capacity and harnessing it in the service of energy policy making and planning.  Initiated in 1987, AFREPREN/FWD is a collective regional response to the wide spread link between energy research and the formulation and implementation of energy policy in Africa.  

AFREPREN/FWD brings together about 100 African energy researchers and policy makers who have a long term interest in energy research and the attendant policy making process.  AFREPREN/FWD  has initiated policy research studies in 18 African countries, namely: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  AFREPREN/FWD also maintains close collaborative links with energy researchers and policy makers in Western and Northern Africa.  

Conference Objectives  

The AEC/AGA brought together key African energy researchers, policy makers and interested donor agency representatives.  The main objectives of AEC/AGA were to:

  • Share experiences and problem solving approaches addressing the numerous challenges facing the African energy sector.  

  • Explore the potential for improving and redefining policy approaches that can effectively tackle the wide-ranging challenges and opportunities in the African energy sector.

  • Present and review the results of AFREPREN/FWD's 3 year energy policy research programmes in 12 African countries.

  •  Propose priorities for the next phase of AFREPREN/FWD's multi-country energy policy programmes.

  • Review and refine proposed energy policy research programmes for the next phase of AFREPREN/FWD Research Programme (1999-2002)
