A new paper from Concord and Action for Global Health on the allocation of DCI.
In the context of the current negotiation of the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) regulation between the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, CSOs urge the EU institutions to prioritise health and basic education2 in the DCI thematic programme “Global Public Goods and Challenges” (GPGC) and to allocate 20% of the whole DCI to these two sectors.
1. Accelerate progress towards sustainable and inclusive development;
2. Ensure inclusiveness and equity of access to quality basic social services for the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalised populations regardless of where they live, paying special attention to women and girls;
3. Respect the EU’s commitments of the Agenda for Change by ensuring complementarity between geographic and thematic programmes.
