Our mission

The European Union Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa (EUTF for Africa) was created to address the root causes of instability, forced displacement and irregular migration and to contribute to better migration management.


Programmes under the EU Trust Fund for Africa are implemented in twenty six partner countries across three regions of Africa: the Sahel and Lake Chad, the Horn of Africa and North Africa.

These countries face growing challenges ranging from demographic pressure, extreme poverty, weak social and economic infrastructure, internal tensions and institutional weaknesses to insufficient resilience to food crises and environmental stress.

Activities focus on  four strategic objectives:


•    Greater economic and employment opportunities
•    Strengthening resilience of communities
•    Improved migration management
•    Improved governance and conflict prevention

FOCUS
MONITORING AND EVALUATION
The quarterly reports are available

To measure the collective achievements of its programs, the EUTF for Africa has developed an innovative and reactive Monitoring system which provides results for ongoing programmes and measures progress at regional level.

Through a set of 41 indicators, the reports measure precisely the progress achieved against the EUTF strategic objectives and regional priorities, by country and thematic. It therefore allows stakeholders to learn collectively from its results.

The MLS complements the monitoring frameworks for each projects as well as the regular tools used by the European Commission such as Results-Oriented missions (ROM). Ultimately, it enhances the transparency, flexibility and speed of EUTF activities.
