High Representative / Vice-President Federica Mogherini participated in a High-Level Panel on Migration and Structural Transformation in Africa, an event hosted by UNCTAD during the UN General Assembly. The EU continues to work with Africa to respond jointly to the challenges of migration. And the new Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs is expected to create up to 10 million jobs in the next 5 years alone and support Africa.
The European Union, through the EU Trust Fund for Africa, and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) co-finance a project in Niger which helps local authorities identify development and infrastructure measures and strengthen their capacity to better address the consequences of migration. More than 150 000 people will benefit from better access to basic services which will also create 1 500 jobs.
