This joint letter from CAN Europe and development NGOs outlines recommendations on EU external action in the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), specifically on Heading VI (Neighbourhood and the World).

With key demands that:

  • The level of resources for Heading VI stays at no less than 10% of the overall MFF
  • The EU must meet its long-standing commitment to contribute 0.7% of GNI to official development assistance (ODA);
  • 90% of the MFF’s external action spending must be ODA and to apply it to Heading VI.
