The European Commission has adopted seven new programmes and additional funds for two existing projects, worth €99.5 million. They will support ongoing efforts to help the most vulnerable people in the Horn of Africa.
At national level, new programmes have been approved in South Sudan, Sudan, Ethiopia. Two newly approved programmes will support the UN’s Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework in Ethiopia and the Great Lakes region, and new funds have been approved for two ongoing programmes in Kenya as well.
With these, the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa counts 200 approved programmes, worth nearly €4 billion, across the three regions (the North of Africa, the Sahel and Lake Chad region and the Horn of Africa).
