New EU Support for Somalia and Mauritius announced during EDD16

Support for resilience and to promote state and peace building in Somalia expected to be one of the key announcements during the European Development Days (...) During the event, EU Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, is expected to announce new support to Somalia worth €73 million during a meeting with Mohamed Omer Arteh, Deputy Prime Minister of Somalia. This funding will go towards building resilience (€25 million) and enhancing youth employment for rural communities and urban households in Somalia. It will focus on the most vulnerable population of Somalia, including Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). A further €48 million will be provided for state building and peace building actions to strengthen core state functions, rule of law, security (including support to police salaries) and the public finance management system. Commissioner Mimica is also expected to sign the National Indicative Programme from the 11th European Development Fund with Bibi Ameenah Firdaus Gurib-Fakim, President of the Republic of Mauritius. The EU support of €9.9 million will focus on tertiary education (including research and innovation) and is designed to help the country become a knowledge-based and innovative society by improving the relevance, quality and equity of tertiary education.
