Niue joined the African Caribbean Pacific (ACP) grouping in 2000. Since then about €6.6m have been provided under the 9th and 10th  European Development Funds (EDF), most of it for sustainable energy.

Political dialogue

The EU's political dialogue with Niue focuses on:

  • protecting its vulnerable environment, especially in relation to climate change
  • defending human rights and gender issues.

 

The EU and Niue are discussing how to collaborate more closely in multilateral fora on these and other issues.

 

Aid and cooperation

The new Country Strategy  for 2008–13 provides a budget of €3m.

The main focus areas for EU assistance and cooperation are:

  • building renewable energy  generating facilities
  • village economic development to improving living standards and encourage Niueans to stay on the island
  • technical cooperation to build institutional capacity - especially to qualify for budget support
  • climate change  - financed through the Global Climate Change Alliance including:
    • building resilience to climate change (with the University of South Pacific)
    • promoting sustainable long-term adaptation strategies (with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community).
