10th EDF Institutional Support to CARIFORUM-EU Development Cooperation and Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) Implementation


Posted in: Projects | 27 July 2015


    BACKGROUND AND PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    The 10th European Development Fund (EDF) Caribbean Regional Indicative Programme (CRIP), valued at €165 million, provides support to CARIFORUM to aid in the implementation of commitments undertaken with respect to the CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). In this regard, a €46,500,000 contribution amount has been provided—for a period of 84 months—to support interventions in seven programme component areas.

     

    The 10th EDF Institutional Support to CARIFORUM-EU Development Cooperation and Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) Implementation Project constitutes two sub-components of Component 7—Institutional and Implementation Capacity—namely:

    •          Institutional Support to the CARIFORUM Directorate; and
    •          Facilitating effective CARIFORUM participation in Joint CARIFORUM-EU Institutions of the EPA.

     

    These two sub-components fall under a Grant supported by the European Union (EU), represented by the European Commission (the Contracting Authority). The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat is the beneficiary of the Project.
