Thematic instruments and programmes

In addition to providing regional and country-based approaches to development through geographic programmes, the European Commission operates programmes with a specific thematic focus. They are implemented on the basis of thematic strategy papers and annual action programmes.

 

In order to provide a rapid EU response to volatile food prices in developing countries, an "EU Food Facility" was set up in December 2008. This new instrument provides for € 1 billion funding to be spent between 2008 and 2010, nearly half of which in 2009.
