European Development Fund

These funds are the main source of EU development aid for the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and the overseas territories (3% of the annual EU budget in 2008-13).

Each EDF is directly financed by the EU countries, has its own financial regulation, and is managed outside the framework of the EU's general budget.

This page gives access to the financial provisions and accounts for the various EDFs.
