Dominica, EU Discuss Continuing Partnership

The two held a Country Portfolio Review Meeting on Monday June 15th to review projects being undertaken in Dominica, as well as to decide on new projects for the upcoming years.

Marc Thill is the Head of Operations of the EU Delegation to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.

"We are going to review our progress,” he said. “What we have done over the years and at the same time we will look at our obstacles and challenges and find solutions for those. We have budget support programmes, normal projects…water supply projects, Banana Accompanying Measures Programme and the non-state actor panel. So it is a very complex, multi-faceted programme which we have had over the years and there is more to come.”

‘Non-state actor panels’ are bodies established in countries which have expressed interest in piloting capacity-building programmes.

They are non-partisan bodies comprising between 8-13 organisations broadly representative of the full civil society spectrum, i.e. community-based organisations, agriculture, business, gender, etc. Their main role is to channel civil society’s input into the EU-Eastern Caribbean development partnership, including political and policy dialogue, programming and implementation of projects/programmes.

Thill listed as an example of things to come in the 11th European Development Fund which he says will be for energy.
