The ACP Group of States

The ACP Group of States was established in 1975 by the signing of the Georgetown Accord which lay the foundation for cooperation between African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP). In that same year, the implementation of the Lomé Convention marked the beginning of cooperation between Europe and the ACP Group of States. The ACP Group of States comprises of nearly 980 million inhabitants spread over 79 countries and 3 continents (48 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, 16 Caribbean and 15 Pacific).

Member States contribute to both the EDF and the general budget, through budgetary instruments - the Development Cooperation Instrument, the Instrument for Stability, the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights and the European Humanitarian Aid Instrument.
