CONCORD AidWatch Report 2015

Looking to the future, don’t forget the past – aid beyond 2015

The tenth CONCORD AidWatch Report ‘Looking to the future, don’t forget the past – aid beyond 2015’ is now available.
The report finds that:
  • As a group, the EU remains well short of the target having spent 0.42% of its GNI on aid, with only four of 28 Member States meeting the 0.7% target
  • Only 4 EU countries are meeting aid targets: Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark and the UK
  • Aid budgets are increasingly being used to cover refugee and asylum seekers costs
  • EU aid is still seen by many as a tool to drive policy change or liberalization in partner countries – much aid remains directly tied or comes with a ‘suggested’ policy agenda.
