The World Energy Cities Partnership is made up of member cities, globally recognized as international energy capitals. This association helps member cities explore business opportunities and share knowledge to advance education and research. This unique partnership also enables exchange beyond the energy industry and the exploration of opportunities for mutual development in education, environment technology, medicine, bio-science and tourism.
The WECP membership cuts across America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania. The Honourable Commissioner whilst presenting Yenagoa's application stressed that Yenagoa is a small city with big ambitions seeking to become the 3rd member city in Africa, alongside Luanda, Angola and Cape Town, South Africa.
The Commissioner assured WECP that upon becoming a member, the city of Yenagoa will be committed to the ideals and goals of the Partnership.
