Prior to the COP23 gathering, the EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility (EUEI PDF) developed and launched a study on Future Energy Scenarios for sub-Saharan African Cities which analyses the main megatrends that will shape the future of African cities and presents scenarios and policy choices to embark into a more sustainable path of growth.

The analysis, carried out in consultation with all mayor city networks as well representatives from various African municipalities, confirms that some of the main challenges in the transition to a sustainable energy supply for urban settlements include the lack of mandate and capacity of municipalities to enable action locally.

The main objective of the session was to present the outcomes of the energy scenarios study for subSaharan African cities and coordinate an interactive discussion around the three identified best practice models for unlocking action in municipalities of sub-Saharan Africa.
