The EU’s Multi-Annual Financial Framework Post-2013: Options for EU Development Cooperation

ECDPM The European Think-Tanks Group – consisting of four of Europe’s leading development policy think-tanks, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), Fundación para las Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior (FRIDE) and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) – has just published a joint briefing paper: ‘The EU’s Multi-Annual Financial Framework Post-2013: Options for EU Development Cooperation’.

As negotiations around Europe’s post-2013 multi-annual financial framework (MFF) begin, there are major questions around the comparative advantage of a Europe-wide approach to development assistance, and the role of the EU in the future global aid architecture. What should this aid be for? How should it be managed? How can European aid adapt to a development landscape that is going through such rapid change, and address current and emerging global challenges? The paper reviews this landscape, sets out options and proposes a set of recommendations.
