Enabel in Guinea | Belgian Development Agency


Guinea has been a partner country of the Belgian governmental development cooperation since 2015. Through this partnership Belgium aims to structurally support the human rights and social and economic development in the country.

The Cooperation Programme for the 2019-2023 period focuses on entrepreneurship, sexual and reproductive rights and capacity development. This approach must ensure concrete results for the benefit of the population of Guinea. In addition to the bilateral cooperation programme, there are two programmes financed by the European Union being implemented.


We aim to improve the economic, technical and social performance of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in 3 areas: the agricultural sector, targeting the pineapple, mango and potato value chains; urban entrepreneurship, particularly New Information and Communication Technology (NICT) and incubators; women entrepreneurship.

Sexual and reproductive rights

The programme ‘She Decides’ improves access to sexual and reproductive rights for women and youths. It furthermore focuses on gender-based violence issues.

Capacity development

We focus on capacity development in growth sectors, particularly of NGOs, small enterprises and civil society. It entails consultation workshops and needs studies and solutions to improve productivity.

Waste management

‘SANITA Clean Cities’ is an EU-funded programme aimed at professionalising solid waste management in the capital Conakry and in the city of Kindia. The aim is to improve door-to-door collection, sorting and recycling of waste, whilst also improving road management and gutter cleaning to better deal with rainwater runoff.

Socio-economic opportunities for youth

The European Union offers prospects to youths by supporting work floor training schemes: Youths learn skills on the work floor to help them subsequently find jobs and become integrated in society. This programme is also being offered to young migrants returning to Guinea.
Enabel implements projects in Guinea, in the domains of the agriculture and water.
