Pillar II - Economic Integration, Cross-Border Trade, Food and Nutrition Security

This is a regional programme intervention in support to building the capacity of the Economic Community of the Great Lakes Countries (ECGLC), and in particular its Permanent Executive Secretariat, and that of other relevant institutions – i.e. ministries of economic development and trade of the GLR countries.

Support will be provided to develop the necessary policies, systems and processes to eliminate trade and non-trade barriers and promote regional trade. The impact of strengthened capacity will be to promote economic integration amongst countries in the Great Lakes region (GLR).
