The EPDN Programme is implemented in the framework of development cooperation between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and the Delegation of the European Union to Namibia. Financed under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), the Contract for the Programme started in July 2020 and will last for five years until June 2025. Due to Covid-19 pandemic-related restrictions, the actual operation of the Programme began in November 2020.
The Programme is designed as a demand-driven intervention to enable responses to the socio-economic challenges and development priorities in Namibia, in the framework of its constitutional provisions, national development policies and continental and global developmental agendas Namibia has signed. The Programme recognises the need to strengthen governance institutions and practices for enhancing citizens’ participation, focusing on oversight of policy and programme implementation.
