AWEPA’s European Membership and Sections form an integral part of its work and mission. AWEPA boasts a broad network of members made up of current and former European parliamentarians from the parliaments of almost all EU Member States plus the European Parliament, Norway and Switzerland. The members constitute, where appropriate, a Section within their respective parliaments.
The main aim of the “Towards Sustainable Natural Resource Management for Inclusive Growth” programme is to engage elected officials at the national, provincial, and municipal levels in oversight of the ways in which the extractive process is managed in Mozambique. The project is based upon the principle that citizens should be left with a net benefit from the extractive processes underway; that the government must assure such benefits; and that extractive industry must be compelled to comply with national and international regulations on this issue.
Membership of AWEPA is only open for current and former Members of Parliament in Europe. If you are not a European (former) MP but you would like to be updated about AWEPA’s activities, please subscribe to the AWEPA Newsletter. To become a member of AWEPA, please fill in the form below.
