Outcomes of the Consultation on the 11th EDF Regional Programming

The first consultation on the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) regional programming for the Pacific region concluded on 12 October 2012. The meeting noted that regionalism in the Pacific has provided many success stories and that further effort is needed to build on the current achievements. “Regional solutions and support are crucial for smaller economies. For many Pacific countries, certain regional services are an extension to those provided at the national level,” Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Tuiloma Neroni Slade said.
“The European Union is fully committed to support the regional integration efforts of the Pacific ACP Countries. The inherent vulnerability of the small Pacific islands states will be taken into account in the 11th EDF programming process,” Mr Alistair MacDonald, Acting Head of Delegation of the European Union in the Pacific, affirmed. The drafting of the 11th EDF Pacific Regional Indicative Programme is expected to be completed by mid-2013 for EU approvals by the end of 2013. Further consultations with key stakeholders will be facilitated. The Pacific region thanked the European Union for its continued support for development cooperation initiatives in the region, and called for strengthened partnership between all development partners.
