AfTRA Funds COMESA Trading for Peace Programme

The Africa Trade Fund has awarded a $963,000 grant to the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) to support the implementation of its Trading for Peace Programme (TfP).

The TfP is the first formal COMESA program to address post-conflict reconstruction and development. Its objective is to consolidate peace in post-conflict areas, especially the Great Lakes Region by encouraging interaction and building trust between communities through the facilitation and formalization of cross-border trade. The project will increase access to information in various border areas through the establishment of Trade Information Desks and the provision of targeted trade-related trainings.
