3 How is aid delivered?  EDF is delivered through national and regional indicative programmes (CSPs) and intra-ACP funding (facilities and programmes)  Thematic programmes are delivered through multi- annual strategies translated into annual work programmes  In both cases actors and projects for implementation are identified through calls for proposals or calls for tender.  Direct aid to governments is provided through budget support, SWAPs and/or projects with ministries  EC is not an implementing body and resorts a lot to technical assistance and consultancy

4 Place of CSOs/NGOs in EC aid  In 2003, 50% of EC aid from the annual budget is channelled indirectly through NSA (NGOs, other CSOs, International organisations, trade unions, employers associations,…)  Partners number 1 for indirect aid are the international organisations (48%), followed by NGOs (39 %) and by other NSA actors (13%)  IO (UN + others) are a main partner for all aid instruments while NGOs are main partners for TBL and Humanitarian Aid mainly  Examples exist of EC aid to CSOs managed by UN agencies: Sudan 50 million package for CS managed by UNDP – World Food programme  In general limited direct access to EC aid for CSOs from Developing countries
