Securing access to raw materials represents a critical issue for the EU’s ambition to deliver on the Green Deal ambitions and implement the clean energy transition and digital twins. As future demand for primary critical raw materials will continue to be largely met by imports, the EU needs to diversify its supply chain and engage in strategic partnerships with resource-rich third countries such as those in Africa, covering extraction, processing and refining. In this framework, the AfricaMaVal project aims to develop EU-Africa partnerships to ensure the responsible sourcing of mineral resources for European industry, whilst granting a sustainable local co-development in the best Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) conditions, leading to a positive, long-terms business environment for European and African companies.
