About the EU Delegation to Zimbabwe

About us - structure and organisation

The Delegation in Zimbabwe is one of the 140 Delegations and Offices of the European Union across the globe.

The Delegation represents the European Union in all matters, informing on all activities of the Union and keeping its headquarters in Brussels abreast of significant local developments. It works closely with the EU Member States in Zimbabwe, and in particular, the country representing the EU Presidency. It also co-operates and co-ordinates activities with representatives of non-EU Member States and multilateral organisations.

One of the Delegation's main activities is to ensure the effective implementation of EU development assistance to Zimbabwe. Most programmes are financed under the European Development Fund (EDF), the main instrument for providing EU assistance to countries in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP), under the Cotonou Agreement. 

We will introduce our new Ambassador and Head of Delegation here once he has presented his credentials to the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe.
