This factsheet describes the mechanism of the ‘Global Europe’, Neighbourhood, development and international cooperation instrument (NDICI). The NDICI-Global Europe earmarks €79.46 billion (in current prices) for cooperation with third countries outside the European Union for 2021-2027 (except for pre-accession beneficiaries and Overseas countries and territories, which are subject to specific instruments), representing a 12% increase compared to the previous long-term budget 2014-2020. This envelope will be used for international partnerships on sustainable development, climate change, democracy, governance, human rights, peace and security in the neighbouring countries, including the Eastern Partnership, and beyond.
