Additional resources for the most vulnerable population in Sudan

The 3026th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Brussels on 12 July 2010 adopted a decision allocating EUR 150 million from the funds decommitted from the ninth and previous European Development Fund (EDF) for the purpose of addressing the needs of the most vulnerable population in Sudan. The funds will be used in particular in the conflict-affected areas, including Darfur, South Sudan, East Sudan and the border regions between North and South Sudan (the Transitional Areas). The government of Sudan's decision not to ratify the revised Cotonou agreement had made legally impossible for the EU to channel development assistance to Sudan through the tenth EDF. The funding complements ongoing EU development and humanitarian programmes in Sudan, including over EUR 500 million in development assistance committed since 2005 and over EUR 750 million in humanitarian assistance since 2003.
