The EU defines its medium and long-term international cooperation priorities through the programming process. Under the ‘Global Europe:Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument programme’ we have defined priority areas for the period 2021-2027 with each partner country and region.
Our funding instruments help us define the legal framework and scope of these programmes, and specify which actors and areas are eligible for funding.
We implement programmes around the world wherever assistance is needed. We tailor our support to fit the region or country being helped. Programmes with a global reach allow the EU to provide similar support to countries facing similar problems.
We use a framework to measure performance of EU-funded interventions and to communicate key results. It is instrumental in tracking the EU priorities for external action.

Projects from EU-funded programmes
EMPoWR informs ethnic minority girls, boys, and young people about their rights, how to access support services, and raise their voice towards policy makers. The project uses an online platform to reach young boys and girls and raise awareness on human trafficking and child marriage.
“Eat4Change” is project calling for a shift toward more sustainable diets and food production practices. The project engages European citizens, especially 15 to 35 year olds, to embrace more sustainable diets, influence peers and support engagement with corporates and policy makers.
“Mindchangers” improves the capacity of local authorities (LAs) and civil society Organisations (CSOs) to launch and run projects and activities that engage youth in addressing climate change and migrations.
