EU Trust Fund for Africa provides €46 million to Libya
The EU Trust Fund for Africa has adopted a €46 million program to strengthen Libyan authorities’ border-management capacity related to migration flows, migrant rescue, smuggling networks, and human rights. The Italian Ministry of the Interior will implement the efforts.
This iniative bolsters other actions that the Trust Fund is already undertaking to reduce migratory pressure along the Central Mediterranean Route. Overall, €136 million have been committed to Libya under the Trust Fund since January 2017, including a €90 million package adopted in April 2017 to reinforce the protection and resilience of migrants, refugees, and host communities.
