#EUTrustFundForAfrica – Nya migrationsrelaterade åtgärder för att skydda utsatta människor och främja motståndskraften hos värdsamhällen i norra Afrika




Europeiska kommissionen har godkänt 5 nya migrationsrelaterade program i norra Afrika på totalt 61.5 miljoner euro. Dessa nya program antagna under EU:s krisfond för Afrika will reinforce ongoing measures to protect and assist refugees and vulnerable migrants in North of Africa especially in Libya, improve the living conditions and resilience of Libyans as well as foster economic opportunities, labour migration and mobility in the North of Africa countries. Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, underlined: “The events of last night killing migrants are a strong reminder of the need to pursue EU’s efforts to protect them and to put an end once and for all to the Libyan detention system. The EU continues to push for the ultimate closure of detention centres and is working to provide assistance and protection to people in need. In the framework of the African Union – European Union – United Nations Task Force, we support vulnerable migrants to voluntarily return and reintegrate in their countries of origin and refugees and asylum seekers to be evacuated out of Libya in view of their resettlement. Our new programmes under the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa will help to protect vulnerable people, stabilise communities, and reduce hardship for migrants, refugees and local people in areas most affected by migratory flows. With these new programmes, we continue to support our neighbours in North Africa to respond together to migration-related challenges in ways that safeguard security, rights and dignity of migrants and refugees, in the mutual interest of Europeans and our neighbours.”. The full pressmeddelande finns tillgängligt online samt ett dedikerat faktablad om EU:s fond för Afrika, North of Africa Window.
