MEDRESET Working Papers No. 31, December 2018
The purpose of this report is to evaluate the effectiveness of EU policies and measures in the energy field in light of the needs and interests of local bottom-up actors in Egypt. The report firstly aims to provide an overview of the Egyptian energy sector, by revising the most relevant literature and institutional documentation to define current and future trends and identify major challenges. This part also assesses current national energy policies, as well as the framework of EU energy policies in Egypt. In the second part, the report builds on the recursive multi-stakeholder consultations held by the researchers in the field, and presents the perspectives of relevant stakeholders at the local level by addressing the major research questions posed by MEDRESET: What issues do local stakeholders deem most relevant? How do they perceive and assess European policy in the region and in their specific policy area? And what are the main policy recommendations? A conclusion summarizes the core findings.
