Request for Intervention Fit For Market

Three years after the launch of the Fit For Market programme, the volume and frequency of requests for support addressed to COLEACP demonstrate both growing needs and the dynamism of the ACP domestic, regional and international markets. To date, Fit For Market has received 773 requests for intervention, of which 745 have been analysed and 494 transformed into support projects jointly established between partner organisations and COLEACP experts.

In view of the resources available under Fit For Market, the programme is now entering a new phase. From January 2020, requests for intervention received by COLEACP can unfortunately no longer give rise to action plans involving individual support, and will therefore be limited to the possibility of accessing COLEACP’s collective services.  

COLEACP is now working to mobilise its technical and financial partners to identify additional resources that will enable responses to the daily requests for support received from private and public stakeholders in the agri-food sector of ACP countries. 



Applications for assistance received by COLEACP through the Fit For Market programme come from micro, small and medium-sized enterprises and private/public actors representing the collective interests and diverse challenges facing the agri-food sector in ACP countries
