A Financing Agreement between the European Commission and All ACP States (represented by the ACP Secretariat) was signed in December 2006 for the "Strengthening Food Safety Systems through SPS measures in ACP countries (EU-ACP Development of Food Safety Systems Programme – EDES)".
The programme was funded by the 9th European Development Fund and it was implemented and managed by a Consortium led by COLEACP in partnership with 8 European organisations. A Grant's Contract between the EC and the Consortium was signed on December 2009 for 4 years.
A 23 month non-cost extension was approved in September 2014, therefore the programme was implemented until December 2015.
The final evaluation of this programme is the object of these current assignment.
The experts have been provided by AESA Europe and AESA Hungary.
