AWEPA currently works with some 30 parliaments across Africa, including national parliaments, continental and regional parliamentary institutions, and decentralised authorities. Together with members of these bodies, AWEPA undertakes a number of jointly-agreed institutional and thematic capacity-building programmes.

Through its institutional bilateral programmes, AWEPA aims to enhance the skills of parliamentarians to enable them to better execute their legislative, representative and oversight roles. Programmes are also carried out in post-conflict zones, where AWEPA seeks to strengthen the role of parliaments in promoting peace, reconciliation and good governance.

Alongside these direct capacity-building activities, AWEPA also implements thematic programmes, which strive to inform and mobilise parliamentarians, building their capacity to take action on specific development issues in their country or region.
