Enabel is active in the Central African Republic since August 2019. Currently we are implementing three EU-funded programmes in the areas of mining resources governance, democracy-building and rural development.
Responsible sourcing of gold and diamonds
As part of the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP), the EU is funding the ‘Strengthening Governance of CAR’s artisanal diamond and gold mining sectors’ project to contribute to transparent and sustainable diamond and gold mining in the Central African Republic by supporting the government in its commitments under the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.
Reintegrating this traditional economic sector in the legal realm is therefore a major aspect of development and political stability
The Democracy-building programme (PCD) came at a particular moment in the country’s institutional political history, that of the preparation and organisation of national and then local elections, which are key to consolidating and legitimising the national democratic institutions.
To revive economic activities and support youth employment, Enabel also intervenes in the area of rural development and in the training of young people in agropastoral trades.
Reintegrating this traditional economic sector in the legal realm is therefore a major aspect of development and political stability.
