The European Parliament adopted by 420 votes to 146, with 102 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing the Neighbourhood, Development Cooperation and International Cooperation Instrument.

The European Parliament’s position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure amended the Commission proposal as follows:

Objectives

The general objective of the programme "Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument" shall be to provide the financial framework to support the upholding and promotion of the Union’s values, principles and fundamental interests worldwide in accordance with the objectives and principles of the Union’s external action.

The specific objectives of this Regulation are the following:

- contribute to the achievement of the international commitments and objectives that the Union has agreed to, in particular the 2030 Agenda, the SDGs and the Paris Agreement;

- develop a special strengthened relationship with the countries in the eastern and southern neighbourhood of the Union, founded on cooperation, peace and security, mutual accountability and shared commitment to the universal values of democracy, rule of law and respect for human rights, socio-economic integration and environmental protection and climate action;

- pursue the reduction and, in the long term, the eradication of poverty, particularly in least developed countries (LDCs); to enable sustainable social and economic development;

- at global level, support civil society organisations and local authorities, further stability and peace, prevent conflict and promote just and inclusive societies, advance multilateralism, international justice and accountability, and address other global and regional challenges including climate change and environmental degradation as well as foreign policy needs and priorities, as set out in Annex III, including the promotion of confidence building and good neighbourly relations;

- protect, promote and advance human rights, democracy, the rule of law as well as gender and social equality, including in the most difficult circumstances and urgent situations, in partnership with civil society including human rights defenders worldwide.

Under the new Regulation:

- at least 95% (as opposed to 92 % proposed by the Commission) of the expenditure under this Regulation shall fulfil the criteria for Official Development Assistance, established by the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. This Regulation shall contribute to reaching the collective target of achieving 0.2% of the Union’s Gross National Income to Least Developed Countries and 0.7% of the Union Gross National Income as Official Development Assistance within the timeframe of the 2030 Agenda;

- at least 20% of the Official Development Assistance funded under this Regulation, across all programmes, geographic and thematic, annually and over the duration of its actions, shall be ring-fenced for social inclusion and human development, in order to support and strengthen the provision of basic social services, such as health, education, nutrition and social protection, particularly to the most marginalised, and with an emphasis on women and children;

- at least 85% of the Official Development Assistance funded programmes, geographic and thematic, under this Regulation shall have gender equality and women’s and girls’ rights and empowerment as a principal or a significant objective.

Budget

The European Parliament has proposed to set the financial framework for the application of the Regulation for the period 2021-2027 at EUR 82 451 million at 2018 prices (EUR 93 154 million at current prices), an increase of EUR 4 billion compared to the European Commission's proposal. The envelope shall be broken down as follows:

- geographical programmes: EUR 63 687 million at 2018 prices (EUR 71 954 million at current prices) [77.24%];

- thematic programmes: EUR 9 471 million at 2018 prices (EUR 10 700 million at current prices) [11.49%]: EU funding for civil society organisations would be increased to EUR 2 390 million, with an additional EUR 500 million for local authorities;

- rapid intervention measures: EUR 3 098 million at 2018 prices (EUR 3 500 million at current prices) [3.76 %].

Parliament proposed that 45% of the funds in the new instrument shall support climate and environmental objectives related to climate, environmental management and protection, biodiversity and combating desertification, and that 30% of the funds shall be devoted to climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Small Project Fund

Financing under this Regulation may be provided to small projects funds, aimed at the selection and implementation of projects of limited financial volume. The beneficiaries of a small project fund shall be civil society organisations.

Suspension of assistance

In the case of a serious or persistent degradation of democracy, human rights and rule of law in one of the partner countries, support may, by means of a delegated act, be partially or fully suspended. The Commission shall take due account of relevant European Parliament resolutions in its decision-making.

European Fund for Sustainable Development Plus (EFSD+)

The new EFSD+ should support investment as a means of contributing to the achievement of sustainable development objectives by focusing on poverty eradication, conflict prevention and the promotion of peaceful, just and inclusive societies, sustainable economic progress, tackling climate change, environmental degradation, the creation of decent jobs in compliance with relevant ILO standards and economic opportunities, in particular for women, youth and vulnerable people.

It shall also support a stable investment environment, industrialisation, cooperatives, social enterprises, as well as the strengthening of democracy, the rule of law and human rights, the absence of which often reflects the root socio-economic causes of irregular migration and forced displacement.

Democratic accountability

The European Parliament shall be fully involved in the design, programming, monitoring and evaluation phases of the instruments in order to guarantee political control and democratic scrutiny and accountability of Union funding in the field of external action.

Parliament may invite the Commission and the EEAS to appear before it to discuss the strategic orientations and guidelines for the programming under this Regulation.

Details

The Committee on Foreign Affairs adopted the report by Pier Antonio PANZERI (S&D, IT), Cristian Dan PREDA (EPP, RO), Frank ENGEL (EPP, LU) and Charles GOERENS (ALDE, LU) on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI).

The Committee on Budgets, exercising its prerogative as an associated committee in accordance with Rule 54 of the Rules of Procedure , also gave its opinion on the report.

The committee recommended that the European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure should amend the Commission's proposal as follows:

Subject matter

This Regulation establishes the Programme “Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument”. It lays down the objectives of the Instrument, the budget for the period 2021 – 2027, the forms of Union funding and the rules for providing such funding. It also establishes the European Fund for Sustainable Development Plus (the ‘EFSD+’) and an External Action Guarantee.

Objectives

The general objective of this Regulation is to lay down the financial framework enabling the Union to uphold and promote its values, principles and fundamental interests worldwide.

The specific objectives of this Regulation are the following:

- contribute to the achievement of the international commitments and objectives that the Union has agreed to, in particular the 2030 Agenda, the SDGs and the Paris Agreement;

- develop a special strengthened relationship with the countries in the eastern and southern neighbourhood of the Union, founded on cooperation, peace and security, mutual accountability and shared commitment to the universal values of democracy, rule of law and respect for human rights, socio-economic integration and environmental protection and climate action;

- pursue the reduction and, in the long term, the eradication of poverty, particularly in least developed countries (LDCs); to enable sustainable social and economic development;

- at global level, support civil society organisations and local authorities, further stability and peace, prevent conflict and promote just and inclusive societies, advance multilateralism, international justice and accountability, and address other global and regional challenges including climate change and environmental degradation as well as foreign policy needs and priorities, as set out in Annex III, including the promotion of confidence building and good neighbourly relations;

- protect, promote and advance human rights, democracy, the rule of law as well as gender and social equality, including in the most difficult circumstances and urgent situations, in partnership with civil society including human rights defenders worldwide.

At least 95% (as opposed to 92 % proposed by the Commission) of the expenditure under this Regulation shall fulfil the criteria for Official Development Assistance, established by the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. This Regulation shall contribute to reaching the collective target of achieving 0.2% of the Union’s Gross National Income to Least Developed Countries and 0.7% of the Union Gross National Income as Official Development Assistance within the timeframe of the 2030 Agenda.

At least 20% of the Official Development Assistance funded under this Regulation, across all programmes, geographic and thematic, annually and over the duration of its actions, shall be ring-fenced for social inclusion and human development, in order to support and strengthen the provision of basic social services, such as health, education, nutrition and social protection, particularly to the most marginalised, and with an emphasis on women and children.

At least 85% of the Official Development Assistance funded programmes, geographic and thematic, under this Regulation shall have gender equality and women’s and girls’ rights and empowerment as a principal or a significant

Budget

The financial envelope for the application of this Regulation for the period 2021- 2027 shall be EUR 82 451 million in 2018 prices (EUR 93 154 million in current prices) [100%].

The financial envelope be composed of:

- Geographical programmes : EUR 63 687 million in 2018 prices (EUR 71 954 million in current prices) [77.24%] for geographic programmes;

- Thematic programmes : EUR 9 471 million in 2018 prices (EUR 10 700 million in current prices) [11.49 %] for thematic programmes:

- Rapid response actions : EUR 3 098 million in 2018 prices (EUR 3 500 million in current prices) [3.76%] for rapid response actions.

The annual appropriations shall be authorised by the European Parliament and by the Council within the limits of the multiannual financial framework during the budgetary procedure, after the priorities have been agreed by the Institutions.

Small projects funds

Financing under this Regulation may be provided to small projects funds, aimed at the selection and implementation of projects of limited financial volume. The beneficiaries of a small project fund shall be civil society organisations.

Suspension of assistance

Without prejudice to the provisions on the suspension of aid in agreements with partner countries and regions, where a partner country persistently fails to observe the principles of democracy, the rule of law, good governance, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, or nuclear safety standards, the Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts amending Annex VII-a, by adding a partner country to the list of partner countries for which Union assistance is suspended or partly suspended. In the case of a partial suspension, the programmes for which the suspension applies shall be indicated.

Where the Commission finds that the reasons justifying the suspension of assistance no longer apply, it shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts to amend Annex VII-a in order to reinstate Union assistance.

The Commission shall take due account of relevant European Parliament resolutions in its decision-making.

Evaluation

The mid-term evaluation report shall be undertaken for the specific purpose of improving the application of the Union funding. It shall contain consolidated information from relevant annual reports on all funding governed by this Regulation, including external assigned revenues and contributions to trust funds offering a breakdown of spending by, beneficiary country, use of financial instruments, commitments and payments, as well as by geographic and thematic programme and rapid response action, including funds mobilised from the emerging challenges and priorities cushion.

Democratic accountability

In order to enhance dialogue between the institutions of the Union, in particular the European Parliament, Commission and the EEAS, and to ensure greater transparency and accountability, as well as the expediency in the adoption of acts and measures by the Commission, the European Parliament may invite the Commission and the EEAS to appear before it to discuss the strategic orientations and guidelines for the programming under this Regulation. That dialogue may take place prior to the adoption of delegated acts and of the draft annual budget by the Commission.

The European Parliament shall be fully involved in the design, programming, monitoring and evaluation phases of the instruments in order to guarantee political control and democratic scrutiny and accountability of Union funding in the field of external action.

Entry into force

It is proposed that the Regulation shall apply from 1 January 2021 until 31 December 2027.

Details

OPINION No 10/2018 concerning the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument.

The Court of Auditors notes that the creation of the NDICI is an ambitious proposal, which provides for: (i) the merging of several programmes and instruments (budgetary and off-budget) into a single instrument; (ii) geographical programmes, thematic programmes and rapid response actions; (iii) different forms of funding.

The Court of Auditors considers that, overall, the proposal will simplify the legislative framework in the field of external aid. It will increase the flexibility of budgetary instruments and preserve the flexibility of the elements previously included in the European Development Fund (EDF).

The Court invites the Commission and legislators to clarify the proposal, suggesting that some provisions should be partially reorganised and others clarified.

General provisions

The Court observes that the recitals stress the importance of gender equality and women’s empowerment, climate change, migration and civil society organisations. However, gender equality and climate change are not explicitly mentioned in the specific objectives in the proposal.

Programming

The Court suggests:

- applying the principle that programming documents for geographic programmes should be results-based to thematic programmes as well;

- including in the proposal the missing reference to the dialogue between the Union, Member States and partner countries. The proposal may include a reference to the main stakeholders consulted during the programming procedure.

Specific provisions for the Neighbourhood

The Court of Auditors recommends:

- applying a similar mechanism for the ‘performance based-approach’ to the whole proposal. This modification would ensure that the ‘performance based-approach’ is not limited to ‘Neighbourhood’ countries as is the case in the Commission proposal;

- deleting Chapter II, ‘Specific provisions for the Neighbourhood’, and including the articles under Chapter I, 'Programming', keeping the specific provisions for the Neighbourhood to a strict minimum. This modification would make the proposal easier to read.

Action plans, measures and implementing methods

Compared to the existing framework, the proposal includes a significantly simpler list of the types of measures that can be adopted (individual, special, support and exceptional assistance measures). In the Court’s opinion, a description of (some of) the situations in which individual measures are to be adopted would make the proposal clearer. Exceptional assistance measures should be treated in a separate article, by virtue of their being exceptional.

The Commission proposes ceilings (EUR 10 million and EUR 20 million, respectively), below which action plans and measures do not need to be adopted ‘by means of implementing acts adopted in accordance with the examination procedure’. These ceilings are double those of the 11th EDF. In the case of programmes already financed under the budget, the ceilings have also doubled. Increasing the thresholds for those exceptions where an implementing act is not required weakens oversight arrangements.

The proposal provide more flexibility in the implementation of the NDICI’s budget. However, the impact of greater flexibility on the management of the funds needs to be assessed given the potential loss of accountability, i.e. less responsibility for the proper management of appropriations.

EFSD+, budgetary guarantees and financial assistance to third countries

The Court of Auditors noted that the budgetary guarantee can be managed more efficiently with a common provisioning fund. Although the EIB was the only bank in charge of the External Lending Mandate (ELM) and the main partner in the EFSD, it is not clear what its future role will be.

Moreover, the proposal lists three conditions with which the External Action Guarantee needs to comply. Necessary achievement of a leverage and a multiplier effect based on a target range of values specified in an ex-ante evaluation for the budgetary guarantee is not stated as one of the criteria.

The proposal states that the provisioning rate shall range between 9 % and 50 %. Although it is specified when a provisioning rate of 9 % is applied, no information is provided when a higher rate (up to a maximum of 50 %) is applied.

The Court notes that the instruments listed in Article 27(3) entail various risks. Loans in local currency and equity participation have a very high inherent risk. For example, the ACP Investment Facility had rules that limited equity participation to non- controlling minority holdings. The Court estimates that operational agreements should contain similar provisions.

Monitoring, reporting and evaluation

In particular, the Court recommends that:

- to make a clear distinction between the evaluation of actions and the NDICI Regulation. This modification would make the proposal clearer by specifying which articles apply to actions as opposed to those which apply to the NDICI Regulation itself;

- better link key performance indicators to specific objectives;

- to ensure that the requirements for the final evaluation of the Regulation are extended to the interim evaluation, where appropriate.

PURPOSE: to establish the neighbourhood, development and international cooperation instrument for the period 2021-2027.

PROPOSED ACT: Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: the challenges that need to be tackled by external action have increased in recent years: regional conflicts, terrorism, economic inequalities and growing migratory pressures, demographic growth and environmental degradation. At the same time, while poverty levels have declined globally, the number of people living in poverty continues to be a major problem, including in emerging economies.

For the next long-term EU budget for the period 2021-2027, the European Commission proposes to increase investment in external actions, to restructure the Union's external action instruments and to integrate the European Development Fund (EDF) into the EU budget in order to ensure greater coherence, to benefit from effective cooperation, to simplify procedures and to achieve economies of scale.

The proposed neighbourhood, development and international cooperation instrument (NDICI) is designed to uphold and promote the Union’s values and interests worldwide in order to pursue the objectives and principles of its external action. It shall be the EU's main instrument for assisting its partners in their political and economic change towards sustainable development, stability, consolidation of democracy, socio-economic development and poverty eradication.

The proposal provides a framework for the implementation of external action policies and international obligations that include the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) and UN Security Council Resolution 2282 (2016) on sustaining peace.

CONTENT: the proposal for a Regulation - presented for a Union of 27 Member States - seeks to establish the neighbourhood, development and international cooperation instrument programme for the period 2021-2027. It also establishes the European Fund for Sustainable Development Plus (the EFSD+) and an external action guarantee.

The neighbourhood and international cooperation instrument shall be based on three pillars:

a geographical pillar to cover planned cooperation with neighbouring countries and all other third countries. This component shall bring together geographical programmes for the European Neighbourhood, for sub-Saharan Africa, for Asia and the Pacific, and for the Americas and the Caribbean to jointly address global challenges such as human development, including gender equality, climate change; a thematic pillar (achieving common goals), which addresses global issues and/or policy flagship initiatives through specific programmes focusing on human rights and democracy, civil society organisations, stability and peace. Aspects covered include health, education and training, women and children, decent work and social protection, culture, migration, environment and climate change, sustainable energy, sustainable and inclusive growth, the private sector and local authorities; a ‘rapid response’ pillar which is dedicated to quick response capacity for crisis management and conflict prevention, as well as strengthening the resilience of states, societies, communities and individuals, the link between humanitarian aid and development actions, and early action to meet other foreign policy objectives.

Flexibility reserve : building on the successful experience of the European Development Fund (EDF), an amount should remain unallocated as an emerging challenges and priorities cushion. The cushion shall be used primarily to address migration pressures, but also stability and security needs, unforeseen events and new international initiatives and priorities.

New European Fund for Sustainable Development Plus (EFSD+) : the EFSD+ shall be an integrated financial mechanism providing financing capacity worldwide in the form of grants, budget guarantees and financial instruments.

The EDFD+ shall support the external investment plan and combine blending and budget guarantee operations covered by the external action guarantee, including those covering sovereign risks associated with lending operations previously carried out under the external lending mandate to the European Investment Bank.

General principles : the following principles shall apply to the instrument as a whole: democracy, rule of law and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, rights-based approach, cooperation, dialogue, partnership, development effectiveness, consideration of climate change, environmental protection and gender equality.

The proposal also provides for an obligation to inform the European Parliament and to exchange information regularly with it.

Proposed budget : the financial envelope for the implementation of the instrument for the period 2021-2027 shall amount to EUR 89.2 billion in current prices. This amount shall be broken down as follows:

EUR 68 billion for geographical programmes : (i) at least EUR 22 billion for the European neighbourhood; (ii) at least EUR 32 billion for sub-Saharan Africa; (iii) EUR 10 billion for Asia and the Pacific; (iv) EUR 4 billion for the Americas and the Caribbean; EUR 7 billion for thematic programmes : (i) EUR 1.5 billion for human rights and democracy; (ii) EUR 1.5 billion for civil society organisations; (iii) EUR 1 billion for stability and peace; (iv) EUR 3 billion for global challenges; EUR 4 billion for rapid reaction operations .

The cushion for emerging challenges and priorities amounting to EUR 10.2 billion may also be used.
