Africa Environment Partnership Platform 2018-concept note


The establishment of the Africa Environment Partnership Platform (AEPP)
stems from the decision of the 12th Ordinary Session of AMCEN, which took
place in Arusha, Tanzania in September 2012, where Ministers discussed
the rationale for creating a mechanism. At this AMCEN meeting the African
Environment Ministers adopted a decision to review the action plan for
the environment initiative of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development
and establish an African Environment Partnership Platform (AEPP) to
“coordinate, mobilize resources, foster knowledge and align support for
the implementation of the Environment Action Plan” (AMCEN, 2012).
