Launch of EDP REPAOC

By enshrining two fundamental principles to govern relations between the member states of the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific states, the 2000 Cotonou Agreement raised the expectations of EU and ACP citizens alike. It made equal partnership, appropriation of development strategies and civil society involvement into the cornerstones of EU-ACP relations. Consequently the European Development Fund (EDF), the EU’s principal tool for development cooperation with the ACP countries which is managed by the European Commission, ought to be programmed and implemented in accordance with these principles. The REPAOC-Coordination SUD report on the 10 EDF reveals that this is not the case. Little has been done to put the fundamental principles of the Cotonou Agreement into practice in the field. The EDF programming modalities make it impossible to increase democratic appropriation of anti-poverty strategies and only help to a very small degree to promote the population’s participation in determining, implementing and assessing public development policies and the Commission’s development cooperation policies.
