The European Union promotes resilience and economic development in cross-border areas in the Horn of Africa - including Omo Valley-Turkana.
On 21-22 February 2018, all partners of the consortium met in Addis Abeba (Ethiopia) to coordinate and plan the implementation of the "Omo Delta Project", one of the 7 initiatives under the cross-border programme funded by the EU Trust Fund for Africa.
The "Omo Delta project project" will take place in Turkana and Marsabit in Kenya, and South Omo and Bench Maji in Ethiopia and its general objective is to increase stability in the area and promote economic development and greater resilience, particularly among youth, women and displaced people. It will be implemented by Veterinaires Sans Frontieres Germany (VSF-G) and five partner NGOs working in Ethiopia and Kenya (Mercy Corps Europe, VITA, EPaRDA, CIFA and TUPADO).
