GDSI Evaluates – How has the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa addressed the root causes of migration?

The EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, also known as the EUTF for Africa was established in 2015 in response to the Refugee Crisis which saw over one million migrants and refugees cross perilous seas to reach Europe. The EUTF for Africa’s aim was to address the root causes of instability, forced displacement and irregular migration across three regions: Sahel and Lake Chad, the Horn of Africa, and the North of Africa.

GDSI was commissioned to carry out a mid-term review of the Trust Fund to identify key lessons for the design of similar interventions in the future. 

Take a look at some of our findings in our video below:
