EuropeAid: What are the funding trends in the first half of 2017?

By Arnau Rovira, Raquel Alcega 16 June 2017

Raquel Alcega, Devex’s Development Data Team lead, explains our exclusive analysis of EuropeAid funding documents.

The European annual summit on development last week saw the signing of the new EU Consensus on Development, alongside strong discussion of the EU’s potential leadership role on key issues such as climate action and women’s rights, as the U.S. — the world’s biggest bilateral aid donor — takes a step back.

Just yesterday, the European Commission announced 143 million euros of development aid for the crises in North East Nigeria, including 123 million euros from the European Development Fund and 20 million euros from the EU Trust Fund for Africa (for which the operational documents are yet to be published).

Building on our previous data explorations, Devex is continuing to analyze EuropeAid’s planned funding activities. Details of 5.6 billion euros worth of EuropeAid early-stage funding commitments published since Jan. 2016 can now be found in our interactive dashboard

The dashboard will be updated on a monthly basis with the latest funding approvals. With some of the earlier funding programs likely to be already under way, you can now also filter activities by publication year, as well as exploring them by region, country, sector and management agency.
