How will the EU commit to financing development? 2019 has seen progress towards a sustainable, human rights-based approach to spending our money where it is most needed. Now it’s time to recap.
CONCORD Europe was invited to speak during the DEVE Committee meeting on 16 May, 2018 under the agenda point “Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027: what does it mean for development cooperation?“. Katerzyna Lemanska (Coordination SUD/GHA) was representing our confederation, in the presence of the DEVE committee and the European Commission. Here are the outcomes of the discussion.
Today, the European Commission has released its communication on the Multi-annual Financial framework (2021-2027). CONCORD, the European Confederation of development NGOs, welcomes the budget dedicated to external actions but raises concern on the merge of external instruments allocated to development aid which will put aid objectives in jeopardy.
The EU presented its first report on financing for development in years at the UN FFD Summit in New York, on April 23rd. CONCORD welcomes this opportunity for greater transparency on the EU’s efforts to support the realisation of the 2030 Agenda.
We are looking for a consultant to conduct our next research on the Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) post 2021. Application can be sent until the 15th of May. More information and Terms of Reference in the blogpost.
CONCORD is on the road to the second High-level meeting of the GPDEC, key moment for our sector to lead the engagement taken on development effectiveness a step further. Find our position paper and the engagement guide which will provide all the information you need to get ready for Nairobi meeting.
