Programme Development North Africa

Project completed

After the revolutionary changes in North Africa, the Federal Council decided on March 2011 that various Swiss government agencies  would reinforce or renew their engagement in North Africa. The Programme North Africa 2011–2016 represents the joint operational framework of the involved Federal Offices. In 2012, SDC identified many programmes and projects, but programme development -conceptualising national/regional programmes- continues in 2013. This proposal secures the required funding for respective project identification missions.
