The EU will provide €115.5 mln for security and development projects in the Sahel

(Ecofin Agency) - The European Union will provide €115.5 million to support projects in the Sahel zone, Neven Mimica (photo), the European Union Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, indicated last week.

The new financial support will be disbursed under the framework of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa. It is divided into five new programmes and three complements to projects already approved by the European Union. About €10 million will be devoted to security projects while €30 million will be used to boost access to basic social services and promote intercommunal dialogue in Burkina Faso via the Sahel Emergency programme. €2 million will also be used to strengthen the coordination of Alliance Sahel.

The European Union also announces that €30 million will be consecrated to the region’s migratory crisis and refugee management while €13 million will be used to create jobs and strengthen state presence in Mali. About €13 million will also be provided for the joint investigation team for the fight against human trafficking in Niger.

Let’s note that €25 million will also be provided to Ghana to support job creation, encourage energy transition and build capacity.

Last year, during the conference for G5 Sahel financing held in Brussels, the European Union announced a €50 million support, raising its help to €100 at the time.
