The study mission, running from June 11 to 13, aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences and best practices between the two institutions. Key discussions will focus on creating a coordination mechanism with national structures responsible for managing externally funded programs, replacing the West African support units for national authorizing officers of the European Development Fund (ROAC-FED). The mission will also prepare for a workshop in July 2024 on consolidating programs financed under the EDF and gather documents from the implementation of the 10th and 11th EDF programs.
