ECOWAS Status Report

RENEWABLE ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY STATUS REPORT 2014 | 9 Through research and outreach that inspire action, the Worldwatch Institute works to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world that meets human needs. Worldwatch is a global leader in climate and renewable energy policy analysis, with a 40-year track record as one of the most influential environmental think tanks in the world. The Institute works with governments around the world to develop Sustainable Energy Roadmaps that facilitate the integration of local and renewable energy sources to their full potential. Worldwatch authors the highly acclaimed State of the World and Vital Signs series of reports capturing the latest global climate and energy trends, and has written numerous publications on international renewable energy development. Bloomberg New Energy Finance has contributed data from the forthcoming Global Climatescope ( org), an assessment, index and practical tool for investors, policy- makers and other decision-makers to access data on and compare the attractiveness of countries around the world for clean energy and other low carbon investment. Climatescope is supported by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) of the Inter-American Development Bank Group and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The first Global Climatescope, builds on the editions in 2012 and 2013 covering the Latin American and Caribbean nations and will include activity in Africa and Asia to comprise a total of 78 countries and key states around the world. It will be published later in 2014. The Africa EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) provides a long-term framework for structured dialogue and co-operation between Africa and the EU on energy issues of mutual strategic importance. Its efforts focus on meeting a series of concrete, realistic and visible targets set by African and European Ministers to be achieved by 2020, the results of which have been elaborated in a Status Report released in early 2014. The report has laid the foundation for the creation of a Monitoring Tool that tracks progress towards achieving the AEEP 2020 Political Targets in future. Data compiled by the AEEP for this work has been used in the preparation of the ECOWAS Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Status Report.
