The 2018 Annual Report of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF for Africa) is now available. It presents the current state of affairs and the achievements of the Trust Fund and provides an overview of programs approved and activities implemented across the three regions up to the end of December 2018.
In 2018, the EUTF for Africa has further demonstrated its added-value as a swift and effective implementation tool, which facilitates political dialogue with partner countries, applies innovative approaches and produces concrete results by pooling together funding and expertise from a variety of stakeholders. In 2018, 45 new programmes and additional funding for 13 ongoing programmes across the three regions have been approved, for a total of EUR 1.2 billion, which will enable the EUTF for Africa to further consolidate its achievements. Its resources have now reached approximately EUR 4.2 billion.
