EU: €294 million to foster stability, jobs & growth in the Horn of Africa

Today, the Operational Committee of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa has adopted a new set of 8 programmes and 4 riders worth €294 million for the Horn of Africa region. This new package complements 50 previously adopted actions amounting to €820.3 million for the Horn of Africa. Approved in seven packages in December 2015, April 2016, October 2016, December 2016, April 2017, December 2017 and February 2018, these actions all contribute to improving stability and addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement in the Horn of Africa region. Two additional cross-window measures (€26 million) also benefit the region in the area of protection of migrants along the Central Mediterranean route and in technical assistance.
Summary of the projects announced today:

Sudan: The programme "Youth, Employment, Skills (YES)" (EU Trust Fund contribution: €15 million) aims at improving the ability of young women and men to find employment or establish and grow their businesses through Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET). The project will target youth and disadvantaged groups such as refugees and internally displaced persons of Darfur. 
The programme "Simple, Spatial, Survey Method (S3M) survey for Sudan" (EU Trust Fund contribution: €1 million) will help to collect and disseminate data on malnutrition among young children, as well as pregnant and lactating women through a survey in Sudan.
The programme "Provision of air services to allow access for humanitarian and development actors in Sudan" (EU Trust Fund contribution: €1.5 million) will provide humanitarian and development actors, donor organisations and diplomatic missions in Sudan with better access to beneficiaries, especially vulnerable communities in hard-to-reach project implementation sites through the UN Humanitarian Air Services. The two latter actions help implementing the humanitarian development nexus in Sudan.
