BRUSSELS | N'DJAMENA (ACP-IDN) – Chief negotiators of the African. Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and the European Union (EU) have underlined the progress made while launching the next phase of the negotiations for a new treaty after the Cotonou Partnership Agreement signed in 2000 ends in 2020.

The Cotonou Agreement is one of the oldest and most comprehensive frameworks of cooperation between the EU and third countries. It focuses on the eradication of poverty and inclusive sustainable development for countries of the two groups. It is divided into three key action areas: development co-operation, political dialogue and trade.

An initiative of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States, the Sustainable Wildlife Management (SWM) Programme, established to tackle these challenges, has published their first newsletter to bring attention to these issues.
