L'UE est engagée dans le développement de la filière coton en Afrique depuis 2004 et a déjà mobilisé plus de 400 millions € (262 milliards de FCFA) pour soutenir ce secteur. Dans le cadre de la Semaine de l’Europe, Yaoundé a abrité le 10 mai dernier un Forum d’échanges d’experts sur cette filière. La rencontre a permis de présenter un rapport qui, produit avec l'appui de l'UE, analyse la contribution du secteur cotonnier à l’émergence socioéconomique et la création d’emploi au Cameroun. La Banque européenne d'investissement-BEI vient de lancer la “ACP Smallholder Financing Facility” qui vise à accroitre l'accès au crédit pour les petits exploitants agricoles et les petites entreprises opérant dans la chaine de valeurs agricoles.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The global objective of this Call for Proposals is to contribute to the achievement and implementation of a more sustainable local energy policy by enabling local authorities in the Eastern Neighborhood countries to implement investment projects incorporated in their SEAPs/SECAPs under the Covenant of Mayors and thus bridging the gap between the SEAPs/SECAPs and their practical implementation.
