Présentation du projet

The UK provided up to £7 million over 3 years through the Arab Partnership Economic Facility (APEF) Country Impact Fund (CIF) programme, to support local projects in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region which contribute to inclusive and sustainable growth in the region.

Working in Egypt, Jordan, Libya and Tunisia, the Country Impact Fund (CIF) provides support to : • strengthened workplace skills that increase employability, • enterprise innovation which promotes more inclusive and fairer growth, • a stronger economic and social evidence base to inform national policy debates and, • improved knowledge sharing and more effective development coordination mechanisms

Through provision of grants between £50,000 and £500,000, the CIF operates as a funding mechanism to support economic development projects proposed by FCO staff based in the UK Embassies in the region (known as Posts). The CIF can fund a maximum of three projects per focus country in any one year. The CIF is designed to make the greatest impact on the overall goal of the APEF by focussing on the core strategic themes of the APEF – lack of access to jobs and opportunities, regional disparities, trade integration and business constraints – and developing projects in areas where small scale and flexible project resources will add the most value and show the best results. To date (July 2014) the CIF has supported 13 projects in four countries.

Project budget : £7,213,233
