Africa: The Declining Relationship Between the EU and ACP States

Refugees, climate change and poverty; there is no lack of issues to discuss for members of the European Parliament and representatives of 79 countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific (ACP). They have been talking for three days in Namibia's capital, Windhoek, in a meeting that is held twice a year. Apart from the current issues on the agenda, there is another topic that's been steadily gaining importance. The Cotonou Agreement, which currently regulates cooperation between the European Union and the ACP states, expires in 2020. What will follow is far from clear. "The partnership between the EU and ACP states is a very special one," Peter Katjavivi, speaker of the Namibian National Assembly and host of the meeting, said in a DW interview." There is no comparable institution that brings so many countries together." There is a lot at stake for the partnership. Between 2014 and 2020, the ACP states will receive about 29 billion euros ($32.5 billion) from the EU's Development Fund. There is also the issue of access to the European market.
