On 25 March, the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa (EUTF for Africa) launched a virtual exhibition to celebrate its five years. The virtual exhibition “Stories from Africa” displays the achievements of the EUTF for Africa in the fields of migration, governance and conflict prevention, resilience, and the creation of employment and economic opportunities.

The EUTF for Africa was set up to help the most vulnerable and marginalised people, including refugees, internally displaced persons, migrants and members of host communities across three regions: Sahel and Lake Chad, Horn of Africa and North of Africa.

By pooling EU and other donors’ resources, the Trust Fund has been able to approve 254 programmes worth over €4.8 billion in total. At the end of 2020, 46% of funding was allocated to strengthening the resilience of affected communities and promoting economic and employment opportunities, 31% to improving migration management, and 21.4% to improving governance and conflict prevention.
