Set of conclusions adopted by the Council of the European Union on 16 April 2021, concerning the development by the European Union (EU) of an integrated strategy for the Sahel region. These conclusions were adopted via written procedure.
These conclusions reaffirm the importance of a solid and long-term partnership between the EU and this region, and of stepping up that partnership through a strategy setting the framework for its policies and actions in the region.
The European Union highlights the importance of short-term stabilisation and long-term prospects for sustainable social, environmental and economic development, above and beyond military involvement. This vision should be in line with international coordination efforts within the Sahel Coalition.
