Our Mission & Objectives

  • EAPD’s mission is to boost Egypt’s international cooperation efforts, particularly South/South cooperation, in areas related to the sustainable development of African and Islamic countries. EAPD offers technical assistance programmes in various fields, capacity-building, training sessions, humanitarian assistance and emergency aid programmes, in addition to the organisation of seminars, field visits, and awarding scholarships. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E Mr. Sameh Shokry, chairs the Board of the Agency which sets its overall policy and follows the implementation of its annual work plan. EAPD is administered by a Secretary General; H.E Ambassador Dr. Hazem Fahmy.  
  • EAPD works to strengthen North-South, South-South and Triangular Cooperation by supporting areas of work identified as a priority by the beneficiary countries. In order to do so, EAPD cooperates with UN Agencies, regional and international organisations, multilateral agencies, foundations and other development partners, as well as the private sector. EAPD concludes bilateral and trilateral agreements with various development stake-holders to broaden its scope of work and raise the necessary supplementary funding.

  • EAPD supports the efforts of African  countries in implementing the Africa 2063 Agenda, as well as in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is eager to help them realise the recently adopted UN Post-2015 Development Agenda, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially with regards to health, education and women’s empowerment.
