External Cooperation Programmes


The European Union, composed of the Member States and the European Commission, is the world’s biggest aid donor. The Commission’s EuropeAid co-operation office manages EU external aid programmes and ensures that development assistance is delivered worldwide.


EuropeAid implements programmes and projects around the world, wherever assistance is needed. It delivers support through regional and country-specific approaches across a variety of sectors. In addition, programmes with a global reach allow the European Commission to provide similar support to countries that have shared problems, even if they are thousands of kilometres apart.
