Brussels, 22 July 2016
The first report based on the new "EU International Cooperation and Development Results Framework" provides a selection of results achieved in about 100 partner countries across the globe with the support of EU-funded projects and programmes. This marks a significant step forward in terms of transparency, and strengthens the focus on performance and results in EU international cooperation and development.
The report presents the results of the most financially important EU funded projects and programmes completed between mid-2013 and mid-2014. It shows that, with the contribution of EU development cooperation, over4.5 million women of reproductive age and children under 5 benefited from nutrition-related programmes, and over 1.1 million births were attended by skilled health personnel, helping to reduce maternal mortality. Over 29 million children were enrolled at school, with over 19 million in primary education and 9.5 million in secondary education.
