The European Commission has awarded Eptisa, in consortium with the company CESO, a new contract providing Technical Assistance to the Officer of the PALOP and Timor Leste Cooperation Programme with the European Union (PALOP-TL / EU) which will be implemented in Portuguese-speaking African countries and it will initially last three years.

The objective of the contract is to implement a unique coordination mechanism of PALOP-TL Programmes thanks to a closer collaboration and a better coordination between the institutions involved, with the aim to increase synergies.

The beneficiary of the Programme is the National Authorising Officer (NAO) of the European Development Found (EDF) of Mozambique.

The main purpose is to support the effective implementation of the “PALOP-TL / EU” plan financed under the 10th EDF, via the coordination of specific projects implemented by the countries, and through the development of political cooperation and communication between the six countries involved.

The contract will also have the responsibility to identify the activities to be undertaken in the two areas selected for the 11º EDF plan, namely the generation of employment and the development of governance capacity.

The following results are expected to be reached thanks to the Programme:

  • Global coordination and cooperation on a consolidated network
  • Establishment of management resources and communication network
  • Setting up of strategic partnerships and future cooperation mechanisms
  • Encouragement of good practices

A wide range of technical support services will be scheduled to achieve these results, mostly activities dealing with coordination, management, communication and training.
