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.
