5th African Union-European Union Summit

Every three years, Heads of States and Governments from Africa and the EU meet to take stock of progress made in the implementation of commitments and to provide political guidance for future work. In 2017, the theme of the summit will be ‘investing in youth’.


The DEVCO Environment Week took place from 6-10 February 2017. Two back-to-back seminars were organised: from 6-8 February, ‘DEVCO Thematic Seminar on Environment - Implementing the Environmental Dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’; and from 9-10 February, ‘Conservation, development and security’ (co-organised with DG ENV and EEAS).
