The All-Africa Energy Week (AAEW) and the Pan African Investment Forum are organized under the auspices of AU Conference of Energy Ministers of Africa (CEMA). Jointly organized by the African Union (AU), African Development Bank (AfDB), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the forum is a framework to evaluate the progress made in infrastructure development and regional energy services. It aims to build consensus on emerging issues, and promote high-level coordination of actions and stakeholders in the energy sector. The first forum, which took place in Mozambique, generated the Maputo Declaration, which established the institutional framework for cooperation in energy matters amongst African countries.
