African Peace Facility – Annual Report 2016

Monday, 26 June, 2017

This annual report of the African Peace Facility (APF) provides an overview of the main activities, achievements and challenges of the key instrument of the European Union to support the African Union's and African Regional Economic Communities' efforts in the area of peace and security in 2016.

As in previous years, in 2016 the largest share of APF funds was allocated to African-led Peace Support Operations. The APF also facilitated development through a long-term financial commitment aimed at supporting the full operationalization of the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) and provided our African partners with an immediately available and reliable source of funding for the first steps of actions aimed at preventing, managing and resolving crises (Early Response Mechanism).

The APF was set up in 2004 at the request of African leaders, and has since then committed over 2.7 billion euro in support of African peace and security.
