New Global Europe Civil Society Organisations programme

The European Commission has launched the Multiannual Indicative Programme (MIP) for the Thematic Programme for Civil Society Organisations 2021-2027, worth €1.5 billion for the period 2021–2027. Funding will specifically support civil society organisations outside of the EU, as independent actors of governance and development in their own right and their engagement to contribute to inclusive and participatory democratic processes and better development outcomes.

The Global Europe Civil Society Organisations programme is funded under the thematic pillar of the new Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI). OCTs are eligible to the thematic strands of the programme. The majority of the programme will be implemented at country level in ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific). Subsequent calls for proposals covering the different activities, open to civil society organisations across the world (including OCTs), will be published in the coming months.
