The Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development was established on the first of July 2014 after merging "The Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa" and "The Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with the countries of the Commonwealth and Islamic countries and the Newly Independent States" in a new entity.
n a decree dated on the third of September 2013, the Prime Minister determined the mandate of the Agency in: granting technical cooperation and humanitarian assistance to African and Islamic countries, organizing training courses and workshops, promoting the collaboration with the United Nations, developed countries, regional and international organizations within the framework of south-south, and north-south cooperation, as well as contributing in funding and in mobilizing funds for development projects.
This institution, affiliated to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is operating according to the established business methods of development aid agencies in the world. One of the principal goals of EAPD is to provide development calibers to African and Islamic countries by offering capacity building programs. For decades, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been contributing in the socio-economic development of African countries through the transfer and exchange of knowledge, skills and expertise since a prosperous Africa remains a key objective for the Egyptian government.
Building on its long experience in helping its continent to overcome the socio-economic challenges, Egypt believes that agriculture, health, education and information technology are essential pillars to build the African Renaissance. The training facilities in Egypt are centers of excellence that utilize state of the art technology to organize the requested courses and to ensure the transfer of knowledge. The programs undertaken by EAPD are diverse and reflect the needs of recipient countries.
Trilateral agreements have been concluded with donor countries, international organizations and development agencies to broaden the scope of work of EAPD as well as to raise necessary supplementary funding.
As part of its continued commitment to Africa, the Egyptian Government allots a yearly independent budget for the EAPD. Additional resources are mobilized from donor agencies and international organizations based on agreements with the Agency. The cost-sharing mechanism has been successfully utilized by EAPD through both bilateral cooperation with the recipient African country, and triangular cooperation with a donor country (or with a U.N agency or an international organization).
