    Abstract

    Earlier research findings in POLINARES Workpackages 2 and 4 identified security of supply of raw materials as a key potential risk to continued EU competitiveness. The position of the EU in global mineral interactions, and the resultant challenge of addressing the risk of security of supply in context of non-energy raw materials, was further discussed in Chapter 4 of Workpackage 5. This paper elaborates upon these previous findings, and aims to highlight some of the challenges in existing multi-lateral collaboration and regional development cooperation mechanisms between the EU and Sub-Sahara African. It concludes by stressing certain critical considerations for future dealings between the EU and the SSA region in the securement of access to non-energy raw materials.
