Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Magdalena Adamowicz (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: EU-Africa cooperation in the framework of the green transition process

Africa is one of the EU’s strategic partners. The relationship between the African Union and the EU is crucial for the stability and development of both the EU and Africa.

The Joint Communication to the European Parliament and the Council: Towards a Comprehensive Strategy with Africa of 9 March 2020 underlines that environmental protection and sustainable development issues must be taken into account during the pursuit of Africa's new development prospects and in meeting the challenges facing the African continent, especially in the context of Africa's rapid population growth in the coming decades.

Following discussions with our African partners, the Commission and the High Representative of the Union proposed five areas for cooperation. One of these is cooperation on the green transition process and access to energy. The document only vaguely outlines the areas in which the environmental aspect of the transition should be taken into account.

Could the Commission therefore say whether plans already exist to support specific actions and investments in Africa that would accelerate the green transition process? If not, when can we expect such plans to emerge?
