The European Union has allocated EUR 43 million to programmes aiming to reinforce Maritime Security in the Eastern and Southern Africa-Indian Ocean region (MASE) and Critical Maritime Routes in the Indian Ocean (CRIMARIO). Experts from the maritime security programmes in the Eastern and Southern Africa-Indian Ocean region (MASE) and Critical Maritime Routes in the Indian Ocean (CRIMARIO) participated in this meeting, which was co-chaired by the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) and the European Union Delegation represented by Jean-Pierre Bardoul.

The 196 parties to COP21 have specified, in the agreement of 12 December, that climate aid from the countries of the North to the countries of the South, supposed to reach 100 billion dollars annually in 2020, must be regarded as a “lower limit” destined to be increased. For the countries of the North this will involve continuing and surpassing their promise made at the Copenhagen conference in 2009 to repay their “climate debt” by means of public and private financing. The financial commitment of the countries of the North has in fact already been a reality for several years. The European Union, in particular, prides itself on being the biggest contributor of climate-related funding to developing countries.

Proparco, the subsidiary of the French Development Agency (AFD) whose mission is to finance the private sector, has granted a loan of 26 billion CFA francs to the Banque Internationale du Cameroun pour l’Epargne et le Crédit (BICEC). It is understood that these funds will be used mainly to finance small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which find it very difficult to access financing. “Through this financing, the BICEC seeks to support companies in their development projects, by creating more jobs, by improving their productivity, by modernising their facilities, thereby contributing added value to the Cameroonian economy,” explained the bank’s management.
