Summary:

The Bêkou EU trust fund for the Central African Republic, the first managed by the European Commission, was launched in 2014, to aid one of the world’s least developed countries. We assessed the justification of the fund’s establishment, its management and the achievement of its objectives so far.

Despite some shortcomings, we conclude that the choice to set up the fund was appropriate in the given circumstances. Its management has not yet reached its full potential in three respects: coordination amongst stakeholders, transparency, speed and cost-effectiveness of procedures, and monitoring and evaluation mechanisms. But it has, overall, had positive achievements to date. Our recommendations should help improve the design and management of this and other EU trust funds.
