EU support to Mauritania- Fact sheet

The EU-Mauritania partnership has been in place for more than 50 years during which the EU has been helping Mauritania to address strategic development challenges in various fields: road construction and transport, agriculture, mining, fisheries and good governance. The EU-Mauritania partnership is currently built on three main agreements: •The National Indicative Program (NIP) for Mauritania under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), for €160 million •The Partnership Agreement on Fisheries amounting to €55 million in addition to €5 million sectorial budget support per year •The EU Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF), under which projects worth more than €70 million are ongoing. Mauritania is also a strategic partner of the EU in the fight against smuggling and trafficking, violent extremism and terrorism in the Sahel region. The indicative allocation for Mauritania (NIP) under the 11th EDF amounts to €160 million for the period 2014-2020, with 60% of the amount already committed. This support focuses on three sectors of intervention designed to help Mauritania address key challenges identified in close cooperation with the Mauritanian authorities, in line with the government's priorities: •Food security and sustainable agriculture: actions are implemented to promote the country's potential in agriculture and to reinforce the efficiency and the governance of the sector. The rule of law: this sector aims to help the Mauritanian government strengthen the general governance, the credibility and the efficiency of its institutions, with a special focus on human rights. Health: the projects aim at supporting the reform of the health sector, to improve coverage to all the population.
