Enabel has been working in Mauritania since 2017. We implement actions funded by the European Union in the rural development and health sectors.

Rural development – Infrastructure

To address food and nutritional insecurity and strengthen the resilience of vulnerable groups in Mauritania, Enabel intervenes in sustainable and agricultural development in Mauritania’s southern and south-eastern rural areas.

A first project will lead to strengthening productive and energy investments, improved access to production and energy services and infrastructure, and a transition to renewable energy; Expected results are better access to water, improved road access, safe resources and administrative support to beneficiaries

Rural development – Food security

The second project aims at sustainable family and community-based production being processed, commercialised and consumed locally. Also, that techniques adapted to climate change are used. Support of the Belgian development agency will bring significant progress in several domains; better organisation of agro-pastoral value chains, better economic infrastructure, education on access to financing and support to better understand the legal system.

The health sector actions contribute to ensuring access to quality health services. The expected result is a health insurance system that can be deployed throughout the country. In a second phase Mauritania will be assisted in putting in place reforms in health development, health sector planning and the establishment of a Universal Health Coverage fund.
