About the All ACP Programme

The European Commission is funding a € 45 million programme called the All African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Agricultural Commodities Programme (AAACP). This 4-year programme aims to improve incomes and livelihoods of ACP producers and reduce income vulnerability at both the producer and macro levels. Specifically, it seeks to strengthen the capacity of ACP stakeholders to develop and implement effective commodity strategies in different parts of value chains. Programme activities are structured around four outcomes:

  • Improve capacity of national commodity chain stakeholders to develop, adapt and lead commodity strategies and implementation plans
  • Improve access to and use of markets, production factors and services
  • Develop and enhance access to market-based instruments to reduce producers’ income vulnerability
  • Capitalize upon the complementarities and synergies of international organizations, EU and ACP actors in the area of agricultural commodities.

The partners in this programme include the Common Fund for Commodities  (CFC), the International Trade Centre (ITC), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the World Bank and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
