History and Objectives

In early 2004, the European Commission produced two Communications, one on agricultural commodities in general, and one specifically on cotton, which were adopted by the EU Council in April of that year.


The Cotton Communication called upon the Commission and Member States to take all necessary measures to implement an Action Plan, based on principles of national participation and effective coordination, and covering trade and development aspects.


Subsequently, at a seminar in Paris, in July 2004, the EU-Africa Partnership on cotton was discussed and endorsed. The Paris meeting, which was attended by EU Members States and by African cotton producing countries, adopted an Action Plan which became an Action Framework in February 2010.


The Action Framework of the EU-Africa Partnership on Cotton covers 6 key areas:



A Steering and Monitoring Committee of the Partnership, the “COS-coton”, was established in September 2004.
