On 21 April, the European Union adopted an assistance measure to provide the African Union with €600m in aid over three years. A €170m package has already been set aside for 2022. The package should be put towards the fight against Boko Haram and the AU mission in Somalia but leaves out the G5 Sahel.
The EU's training mission in CAR has been suspended since the beginning of December, however ways to revive it are currently being examined. Cooperation with the Rwandan army is one route being considered in Paris, but implementing this would be challenging.
The speedy start of Rwandan army operations in Cabo Delgado has finally enabled Mozambique to reclaim the territories it had lost. The government's other military partners were not given the same opportunities to bring their troops into the conflict so quickly, however, and are struggling to establish contact with Mozambican army command structure which has been entirely reorganised by Filipe Nyusi.
