Over the past weeks, Devex has embarked on an exclusive exploration of EuropeAid funding priorities, analyzing operational documents released between January 2016 and April 2017, to show where billions of euros worth of aid is being directed, for what projects, and how.

We started with Africa, the region allocated the most money during this period, at 2.7 billion euros ($3.03 billion). More than half of this has been channeled through the European Union Trust Fund for Africa, with migration as a key priority across the funding streams. We also found that most of the projects are being indirectly managed, typically by national aid agencies. Read more here.
