Germany pledges EUR 55m to AU programmes

The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany has pledged another EUR 55 Million in support of African Union (AU) programmes and joint strategic initiatives after its bilateral negotiations with the African Union (AU) Commission, recently concluded. The focus of this year’s commitment is largely on agricultural development through enhancement of agricultural skills. A new element of the cooperation between the AU and Germany is on the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA). Germany made an initial pledge of EUR 5 Million in support of the ongoing CFTA preparations and negotiations. This year´s commitment particularly focuses on the support to the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), which will benefit from additional EUR 29 Million from Germany. The additional contribution mainly supports agricultural technical vocational education and training (TVET) in more than 10 African countries and with a special focus on women.
