Collaboration in Cross-Border Areas of the Horn of Africa Region

The overall objective of the action is to prevent and mitigate the impact of local conflict in these borderland areas, and to promote economic development and greater resilience. This will include investments in conflict management and resolution capacities; enhancing and diversifying livelihoods, including livestock, agriculture and fisheries; strengthening basic service delivery; natural resource management; and promoting cross-border trade and private sector development

The programme was officially launched January 2017 during an IGAD extra ordinary General Assembly.

A top-up of €5 million to this action was approved in October 2021, aiming to strengthen the progress that has been achieved since 2017 and ensure the gains made have a lasting impact on beneficiaries.

Main objectives

The specific objectives are:
• To prevent local conflict and mitigate its impact;
• To promote economic and private sector development, and greater resilience, particularly among vulnerable groups (e.g. youth, women, displaced people);
• To ensure effective trans-boundary cooperation and coordination of cross-border initiatives.
