EU Development Assistance
Source: House of Commons International Development Committee (UK)
From the Introduction:
In 2010 the UK spent £1.3 billion in aid through the European Union (EU)— approximately 18% of the UK’s total aid budget. The EU is the UK’s largest multilateral partner. Of the money that the UK gave to multinationals in 2009–10, the EU institutions (including the European Commission budget and the European Development Fund) received the largest amount (£1.19 billion, 49%), double the next largest, the World Bank group (£560 million, 23%) and five times more than the United Nations system (£216 million, 9%).
The EU institutions are the world’s second largest donor behind the USA. Total European Commission managed aid in 2010 was €11.1 billion of which €10.7 billion was reported as Official Development Assistance (ODA).1 Combined with its Member States the EU is responsible for 60% of all global development aid (€54 billion in 2010).
