The European Commission has today formally approved a package of 13 programmes in the fields of health, climate change (environment and disaster risk reduction), education and culture, trade and private sector development, agriculture and rural development and sanitary services. The EU is making available a total amount of €445.3 million from the 10th European Development Fund for these programmes benefiting all African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. The package include notably, in the field of health, a € 150 million contribution to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and € 20 million for increasing access to new and under-used vaccines in least developed ACP countries. In the education sector, the ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Higher Education will be provided € 20 million and the Intra-ACP Academic Mobility Schemes € 40 million. In the field of climate change, the EU contributes with € 60 million to the ACP-EU Natural Disaster Risk Reduction Programme; with € 20 million to Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) and with € 10 million for climate-smart land and water managemen. The EU-ACP support programme for the cultural sector is also included in today's adopted package (€ 30 million), as well as the programme "Reinforcing Veterinary governance in Africa" (€ 30 million).
