 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Sustainable development is closely linked to the issues of Environment and Energy and their interdependencies. Sustainable economic growth and social development are only possible if secure, constant and equal access to energy sources is guaranteed. However, intensive energy use is likely to present serious implications for the environment and the climate. Especially in developing countries, promotion of sustainable energy options is necessary to tackle these challenges. In Africa, Civil Society Organisations (CSO) have been particularly active in addressing sustainable development and energy management within the last 15 years. While presenting important representatives for social needs and concerns, their effective impact on research policy agenda setting has however been considerably low yet. In line with the EU’s commitments to strengthening civil participation and to promoting a global approach to the issue of sustainable development, SustainergyNet aims at promoting the engagement of CSOs in Africa in the field of research policy agenda setting concerning sustainable and efficient energy management. In this perspective, the project will elaborate and suggest ways on how to encourage and facilitate the cooperation between CSOs and RTD performers. This will be based on the assessment of current settings and frameworks that already exist, the formulation of recommendations and best practices and the presentation of a specific facility (“CSO Involvement Net”) that shall support CSOs towards actively contributing to research and policy processes.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A unique collaboration between Europe and Africa aims to advance the sustainability agenda by encouraging interaction between the research community and non-governmental organisations.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Developed countries have a responsibility to help developing countries limit their environmental impact, which is heavily dependent upon energy production and consumption. The EU in particular has realised the need to engage in this type of activity beyond its borders.

The 'Integrating civil, scientific and stakeholder knowledge towards African sustainable energy policy' (Sustainergynet) project targeted Africa with the aid of EU funding. More specifically, the objective was to enhance the involvement of civil society organisations (CSOs), also known as non-governmental organisations, in the policymaking process for energy.

The first task was to gauge the current level of CSO participation. This was accomplished by interviewing experts on the ground as well as by researching relevant literature. Stakeholders were also invited to a workshop to initiate an open dialogue. The result is a set of summary documents prepared by the Sustainergynet team.

Another key element of the project is the organisation of a conference to discuss initial recommendations and build momentum. Arrangements are also being made for an e-conference to boost participation. In order to spread the word, a dedicated website has been developed and a multilingual newsletter is distributed regularly.

Moving forward, the hope is to break down barriers to CSO involvement and do a better job of exploiting relevant sustainability research results.
