The objective of the programme is to promote sustainable development and poverty alleviation by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. The programme aims to strengthen co-operation between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the African, Caribbean and Pacific region in view of increasing access to quality education that will encourage and enable African, Caribbean and Pacific students to undertake postgraduate studies, and to promote student retention in the region along with mobility of staff (academic and administrative) while increasing competitiveness and attractiveness of the institutions themselves. More specifically the programme aims to: (a) provide access to higher education for students including those from disadvantaged groups; (b) facilitate cooperation on recognition of studies and qualifications; (c) contribute to the improvement of the quality of higher education through the promotion of internationalisation, and harmonisation of programmes and curricula within participating institutions; (d) enhance the international cooperation capacity of Higher Education Institutions in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries; (e) promote cooperation between sending and host institutions; (f) enable students, academics and staff to benefit linguistically, culturally and professionally from the experience gained in the context of mobility to another country; (g) enhance, in the medium-term, the political, cultural, educational and economical links between the participating countries.
