On February 28, Germany handed over its role as EIF Donor Facilitator to the EU Delegation to Nepal. The EIF is the main mechanism through which LDCs access additional Aid for Trade resources. Since becoming EIF Donor Facilitator for Nepal in 2012, Germany has successfully supported stronger coordination both within the donor community and between donors and the government of Nepal.
The EU is also a strong partner for coordinating development partners in the trade sector. Since 2013, the EU has been implementing a trade programme to support the coffee value chain in Nepal. Handing over Germany’s position to the EU will thus secure the continuation of the past five years’ work.
