About

Description (description)

Established in 2007 by the European Commission and several EU Member States, the EU-Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund (EU-AITF) provides grant support for infrastructure projects in sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of reducing poverty and fostering economic growth in the region. The EU-AITF consists of two envelopes: Regional Envelope, a EUR 483 million envelope dedicated to cross-border and national infrastructure projects in energy, transport water and ICT; and Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL), a EUR 330 million envelope that supports renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in line with the UN’s SE4ALL initiative. The EIB is responsible for the financial management of the trust fund and hosts its Secretariat.

Sustainable Development Goals

Donor-financed operations make a direct contribution to several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are some of the global goals targeted by our trust funds. Our collective actions unlock billions of euros in investment to combat climate change, eradicate poverty and fight inequality.
