European Union and Ethiopia sign Common Agenda on Migration and Mobility

EU News 327/2015

Brussels, 11 November 2015

Today, the EU and Ethiopia have signed a joint Declaration for a Common Agenda on Migration and Mobility (CAMM), reflecting the importance of Ethiopia as a key country of origin, transit and destination of irregular migrants and refugees from the Horn of Africa on the route to Europe.


The two parties will cooperate on issues of international protection and refugees' needs, legal migration and mobility, irregular migration, smuggling and trafficking in human beings and development policy. Funding will be made available for implementation of concrete activities, notably through the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, for which the EU has already mobilised €1.8 billion.
