The specific objective is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations representing children, youth, women, people with disabilities and other marginalized groups to constructively engage in inclusive social protection policymaking, effective programme implementation and accountability of duty bearers.
“We will keep mobilising all our means to protect all those that have been and continue to be exposed to this abhorrent human rights violation and stand by all those who very courageously engage against this crime through awareness raising, engagement in civil society organisations or support to victims.” On the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the EU reaffirms once again its strongest commitment to prevent, condemn and eradicate all forms of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
The overall objective is to ensure that girls and boys right to protection from abuse, exploitation, neglect and violence is protected, is respected and fulfilled in armed conflict affected communities in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

The revised EU Maritime Security Strategy (EU MSS) Action Plan contributes to the implementation of the EU Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy and the Joint Communication on International Ocean Governance. It features, for the first time, a section dedicated to regions and sea basins, including the Horn of Africa-Red Sea, which is a major choke point of international trade and the crossroads between the Mediterranean basin and the Wider Indian Ocean region. The threat posed by Somalia-based pirates to maritime trade routes is now largely in check, with incidents occurring sporadically. EU NAVFOR Operation ATALANTA has played a major role in securing this area.
