Building a harmonized and centralized Energy database through the Africa Energy Information System

TagsEnergy Access, Finance and Investment

An essential driver of the emerging data revolution in Africa is the strengthening of the statistical function at the pan-African organizations, namely the African Union (AU), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) to address the issue of statistical underdevelopment in the Region. Among other responsibilities, these pan-African organizations are mandated to play a significant role in ensuring the harmonization of statistics in Africa and developing a continental statistical database.

The African Energy Commission (AFREC) and the African Development Bank (AfDB) a specialized technical agency of African Union (AU), have collaborated to build a modern Energy Information System (AEIS) for the African Continent.

This webinar event will have the opportunities to:

(i) reiterate to the audience that the African Union Commission and the African Development Bank recognize the importance of availability of reliable and up to date data in the African energy sector.

(ii) introduce the 2020 AEIS to different stakeholders;

(iii) highlight the key features of the AEIS as a tool for harmonization and coordination of statistical activities as well as rationalization of collection and dissemination of statistical information in Africa;

(iv) establish and/or enhance collaboration and partnership among stakeholders around the AEIS.
