Post-Cotonou: EU Negotiating mandate with ACP

The purpose of the negotiations is to conclude a strengthened Partnership between the European Union (EU) and its Member States of the one part, and the countries of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific of the other part. The new Agreement is envisaged as a comprehensive partnership with the aim to strengthen the relations between the Parties and generating mutually beneficial outcomes on common and intersected interests. The Agreement will aim to advance sustainable and inclusive development, based on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change as the overarching frameworks guiding the partnership. The Agreement will seek to build peaceful and resilient states and societies. The objective is to obtain a new Agreement that consists of a Foundation and three regional partnerships. The Foundation, applicable to all members of the Partnership, will list general objectives, principles and priorities, and enable increased cooperation at international level. The centre of gravity will be on the regional partnerships, setting region- specific priorities towards countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, in line with intensified regional dynamics and the increased importance of regional organisations. The Agreement will be open to and welcome the involvement or accession of third countries which subscribe to the same values, contribute to meeting the objectives, and share the same interests. The Agreement will take into account the specific concerns of the EU’s Outermost Regions and Overseas Countries and Territories.
