EU institutions are currently in the process of negotiating the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the EU budget from 2014 to 2020. The MFF negotiations are of particular importance as they will lock-in the EU main policy priorities from 2014 for 7 years.


It is not only the EU budget and the instruments to implement it that are at stake but more broadly the EU integration process and the future role of the EU in a variety of policy areas including foreign policy and climate change.


The CONCORD working group on the MFF produced concrete recommendations towards the EU institutions. You can find them in the article "Budget Increase for the European Neighbourhood Instrument - An Update on the MFF Negotiations" by Elise Vanormelingen in the 2012 edition of the TRIALOG Bulletin (here).


TRIALOG published a Policy Digest on the MFF in December 2012. Learn what are the main and related issues that need to be understood, hat has happened so far, what are the next steps, why this issue is important in the EU13 context and how you can engage further.

Also CYINDEP, the Cyprus Islandwide NGO Development Platform compiled the policy digest paper Multiannual Financial Framework (September 2012)

Contents are:

  • ‘Heading 4’ and its importance for development cooperation
  • Status quo of the negotiations
  • Recommendations for Civil Society, European Leaders and Cypriot decision-makers
