AKP i Afrika

This page is also available in

Od prve Konvencije iz Loméa (1975.) do Sporazuma iz Cotonoua (2000. – 2021.) partnerstva EU-a i zemalja AKP-a uređivala su odnose između EU-a i 79 zemalja Skupine afričkih, karipskih i pacifičkih država (AKP), koja je nedavno postala Organizacija afričkih, karipskih i pacifičkih država (OACPS).

Tijekom tog razdoblja EGSO se, zajedno s civilnim društvom zemalja AKP-a, borio za priznavanje ključne uloge nedržavnih aktera u razvojnom procesu sve dok se to nije postiglo Sporazumom iz Cotonoua, kojim se EGSO-u daje mandat za organiziranje aktivnosti i savjetovanja s „gospodarskim i društvenim interesnim skupinama zemalja AKP-a i EU-a” kako bi se prikupljala stajališta organiziranog civilnog društva i kako bi im se osigurala veća vidljivost.

Cilj je poticati razmjene i iznositi preporuke o pitanjima i politikama važnima za odnose zemalja AKP-a i EU-a te ih potom službeno upućivati čelnicima EU-a i zemalja AKP-a.

U praktičnom smislu, aktivnosti EGSO-a u području odnosa između EU-a i OACPS-a uglavnom se provode pod vodstvom zajedničkog Odbora za praćenje AKP-a i EU-a koji čine članovi EGSO-a i delegati koji predstavljaju skupine gospodarskih i socijalnih interesa iz zemalja AKP-a.

Odbor za praćenje AKP-a i EU-a održava redovite kontakte s predstavnicima civilnog društva zemalja AKP-a na različitim razinama putem:

  • redovitih sastanka Odbora za praćenje AKP-a i EU-a,
  • regionalnih seminara u zemljama AKP-a, koji predstavljaju forum za raspravljanje o temama od zajedničkog interesa s predstavnicima civilnog društva u raznim regijama,
  • glavnih skupština gospodarskih i socijalnih interesnih skupina iz zemalja AKP-a i EU-a koje se održavaju svake tri godine u Bruxellesu.

EGSO također održava redovite kontakte s predstavnicima gospodarskih i socijalnih interesnih skupina Afričke unije u okviru zajedničke strategije EU-a i Afrike.

Konkretno, EGSO svake godine održava sastanke s grupom gospodarskih i socijalnih dionika Afrike i EU-a.

Već dugi niz godina EGSO održava redovite odnose sa Zajedničkom parlamentarnom skupštinom AKP-a i EU-a te na zasjedanjima Plenarne skupštine podnosi izvješća o njezinim aktivnostima.

EGSO je također u bliskom kontaktu s međunarodnim organizacijama poslodavaca, radnika, poljoprivrednika, zadruga i potrošača. Te organizacije imenuju predstavnike AKP-a koji će biti pozvani na sastanke koje organizira EGSO, uključujući i sastanke Odbora za praćenje AKP-a i EU-a.

This role has been confirmed by the Cotonou Agreement, which mandates the EESC to organise consultation sessions and meetings of ACP and EU economic and social interest groups (Protocol 1).

Within this framework, the EESC organises general meetings in Brussels every three years, with delegates from the 78 ACP countries, together with representatives of the EU institutions, national economic and social councils, the secretariat of the ACP Group of States, EU and ACP states' diplomatic missions, NGOs and other interested parties. These general meetings are in addition to the regional seminars, which take place in the ACP regions once a year.

The social economy is prominent in everyday life and in the productive activity of large regions of the world and makes a decisive contribution to improving the living and working conditions of millions of people. However, the social economy is not specifically recognised as a sector in the EU development cooperation programmes.One of the principal aims of the opinion is that the external dimension of the EU’s programmes and initiatives should establish support measures specifically targeted at boosting businesses and organisations in the social economy.
