The European Commission’s financial transparency system shows how the European Union budget framework is being utilized to support low- and middle-income countries, refugees, humanitarian crises — and who is helping to deliver on objectives.

Within the data that provides insights into the current budget cycle between 2014 and 2018, the top NGO partners delivering on humanitarian and development objectives can be found in the analysis of contracts and grants managed by two departments of the commission — DG DEVCO, the Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development, and DG ECHO, the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations.
