Tell Me About Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) NextGen Leaders Programme:

The Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) was established to contribute to the development of alternative and innovative policy interventions through high-quality research, analysis, and advocacy in Africa’s energy and extractives sector. ACEP works on improving resource governance by promoting beneficial ownership disclosures, exposing corruption and tax evasion, curbing illicit financial flows (IFFs) in the extractive sector, capacity building of state and non-state institutions, equitable distribution of resources and efficient delivery of development interventions. The work of the organisation, therefore, spans the entire spectrum of resource governance, from the issues around the extraction of the resources, to how the outcome of the resources impacts all citizens, particularly women, youth, and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

ACEP prioritizes its efforts around the following energy and resource governance areas:

  • Revenue Governance
  • Contract Governance
  • Corporate Governance and Institutional Development
  • Climate Change and the Energy Transition
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Resource Governance

The Next Generation Resource Governance Leaders Programme

The Next Generation Resource Governance Leaders Programme is a six-month internship that intends to balance a dose of theory with real-world application and equip participants with the requisite multi-disciplinary intellectual development, practical skills, and research abilities to think in more innovative ways to solve complex governance challenges. The Programme is also a strategy to build a pipeline of young pan-African leaders to provide a sustainable path for good governance.

The core of our ambition is to train and nurture young people in an enabling working environment through a structured capacity development process. These will include training on transformational leadership development, professional and career development, and digital communication and technological skills. Essentially, beyond the technical training in resource governance, interns will be exposed to the tools and guidance needed to set and achieve realistic personal and professional goals, coupled with well-rounded and ethical leadership training.

ACEP is calling for applications for the Second Cohort of its Next Generation Resource Governance Leaders Programme. The duration for the internship will be from January 2022 to June 2022.
