EU : €20m stabilisation support package for Mali

A first 20 million Euro stabilisation support package was approved on Friday 15 February for immediate support to Mali's law enforcement and justice services, the Malian local authorities, dialogue and reconciliation initiatives at local level, and the first phases of the upcoming electoral process. This decision puts into practice commitments agreed by the extraordinary Foreign Affairs Council on the situation in Mali on 17 January.
The package will be part of the Instrument for Stability (IfS), and is an early instalment of the EU's response to the crisis in Mali, and complements of other instruments, as the financial and logistical support to the African-led International Support Mission to Mali (AFISMA), the EUTM and EUCAP Sahel CSDP missions, the current IfS long-term Counter-Terrorism project for the Sahel, the EU-INTERPOL Western Africa Police Information System, or the EU humanitarian aid, and development cooperation.
The Instrument for Stability (IfS) was launched by the EU in 2007 to help build long-term international, regional and national capacity to address pervasive transregional and global threats. Every year, EU IfS support is deployed for around 40 crisis response actions worldwide.
Earlier this month, the resumption of development aid to Mali for an amount of some €250 million was announced by EU Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs.
