Image of Governance Programme

Governance is one of two focal sectors funded by the EU in The Gambia under the Country Support Strategy for the period 2008-2013 (EDF10). EU funding aims to contribute to better democratic and financial governance in The Gambia. The focal sectors include improving access to justice and legal education (addressing limited capacity in justice-related institutions and making legal education available to more Gambians); supporting journalists and the media by seeking to improve governance of the media sector, with a particular emphasis on the legal and regulatory framework; and finally, bolstering financial governance, through reform of the public expenditure, taxation and revenue administrative systems (public finance management).
