Hypothetical EPAs for SADC and ESA regions
This study provides an analysis of the potential impact on SADC regionalism of two scenarios: in both of them, those SADC countries that are negotiating as part of the ESA group are assumed to adopt an EPA that approximates to the current ESA guidelines; in one of the two scenarios it is assumed that all of the SADC minus countries adopt an EPA reciprocity scenario based upon the work ODI has done already done for Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland (BLNS); in the second scenario it is assumed that BLNS adopt this scenario but that Angola, Mozambique and Tanzania do not change their import policies towards the EU. Consultant will seek to establish, under both scenarios, the extent to which the adoption of the hypothesised import regime vis à vis the EU affects their implementation of the SADC trade protocol.
