The bilateral cooperation program between the Belgian government and Guinea represents a significant commitment to sustainable and inclusive economic growth in the region. Initiated on December 14, 2018, and scheduled to last for five years until December 13, 2023, the program allocates a substantial budget of 45 million euros to its objectives. The overall goal of the Guinea portfolio is to contribute to sustainable and inclusive economic growth along the Conakry-Kindia-Mamou axis. The decision to focus Belgian support on inclusive and sustainable economic development, human development, and the respect for fundamental human rights aligns with the priorities of the Guinean government.
Six projects are operationalized in a complementary, integrated, and structured manner across three pillars: entrepreneurship, sexual and reproductive rights, and capacity building.
- Agricultural Entrepreneurship
- Urban Entrepreneurship
- Women’s Entrepreneurship
- Support for entrepreneurship development along the Conakry-Kindia-Mamou – Mont Gangan axis
- She Decides (Promotion of Sexual and Reproductive Rights)
- Capacita (Project for Training, Studies, and Expertise)
This evaluation will primarily serve the purpose of strategic learning. The insights gained will be valuable in guiding new initiatives and ensuring a smooth transition between the two programs. The themes addressed in the context of the final program evaluation will have a broader scope. They will contribute to strategic learning within Enabel and at the Guinean partner level to improve development practices and cooperation policies. This knowledge can be applied in other contexts and future programs.
