43 Last but not least, the EU delegation to the AU and EC delegations in African countries have emerged as essential JAES implementation and monitoring instruments whose importance is enhanced by their presence on the ground, and direct access to African partners and stakeholders.

The EU Strategy for Africa and the Way toward Lisbon 2007 In presenting its Strategy for Africa —subsequently adopted by the EU Council in December 2005—the European Commission (EC) stressed that for too long the EU’s relations with Africa have been too fragmented, both in policy formulation and implementation between the different policies and actions of the EU Member States and the European Commission; between trade cooperation and economic development cooperation; between more traditional socio-economic development efforts and strategic political policies.

The JAES: Overview and Ambitions The JAES and its Action Plans epitomize EU-Africa strategic partnership which is intended, at its core, to bring a measure of coherence to a largely fragmented system of interaction. The strategic partnership is made of five key segments: (1) an overarching policy framework outlined in the JAES; (2) EU and African institutions and actors engaged either formally or informally in the strategy; (3) the structures and events—with the thematic partnerships at the forefront—aimed at jointly managing this complex relationship; (4) the Action Plan which outlines the parties’ priorities and operational commitments; and (5) financial resources.
