European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD)

29-06-2017

Subject to external migratory pressure, driven by conflict, instability and poverty in its neighbourhood, the EU is adapting its policy framework to address the challenges of the protracted crisis. In July, the European Parliament will vote on the proposed EFSD (accorded priority treatment under the Joint Declaration on the EU's legislative process). The EFSD aims at using EU grants and guarantees to leverage public and private investment, to tackle the root causes of migration in the European Neighbourhood and Africa, and achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
