This Action Document captures the projects to be committed in 2017 in Egypt under the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa (i.e. “Trust Fund” or “EUTF”).
The proposed Action follows an approach to tackle migration challenges in Egypt that was jointly identified by the GoE and the EU. It takes duly into consideration the implementing entities suggested by the GoE and covers projects in four thematic areas as defined and classified in the Egypt Framework Paper, namely development cooperation, vocational and technical education, institutional capacity building in the field of migration, and supporting Egypt’s efforts to host refugees.
The Action also addresses all the five priority domains that the Valletta Action Plan is built around with particular focus on the following domains: 1. Development benefits of migration and addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement, 3. protection and asylum, 4. prevention of and fight against irregular migration, migrant smuggling and trafficking in human beings.
Additionally, the Action will contribute to the Specific Objective 1 of the Operational framework of the North of Africa Window of the Trust Fund, "to foster rights-based migration-governance systems in the region", to Specific Objective 3, "to strengthen the protection and resilience of migrants, forcibly displaced persons and local populations", and Specific Objective 4, "To foster more inclusive social and economic environment and stability in the region"

SO 1: To enhance Egypt’s migration management
