Note on West Africa Fund (WAF)

  1. WAF projects should primarily benefit the African institutions and individuals. The expected results are twofold: enhanced mobility of higher education students in Africa; and reinforced capacity for West African teachers and their HEIs in managing international mobility. The focus of European staff going to Africa should be to support the mobility activities of the project by mentoring the students and providing coaching for the African HEIs.
  2. The EC confirms that both Incoming and Outgoing Staff Training (STT) and Staff Teaching (STA) activities are eligible.
  3. The EDF and WAF funds are distinct sources of funding and NAs must be able to explicitly trace both funding sources. Flows with Nigeria for instance within a single project must be funded either by EDF or by WAF but not both funding sources.
  4. As is the case under EDF or DCI, outgoing short, first and second cycle mobilities are not eligible under WAF.
