EDCSP has relaunched its report looking at “EU Blending Facilities: Implications for Future Governance Options”, following the launch of the European Commission’s public consultations into a ‘Proposed EU Platform for External Cooperation and Development’ to oversee blending of loans and grants.

The report offers an independent contribution to the EU’s internal discussions on its future mechanisms for the complementary use of grants and loans (blending). It reviews the existing EU blending mechanisms, comparing their different governance arrangements, drawing lessons from each, and considers the pros and cons of possible future governance options for blending operations.

Read the report here.

The European Commission has recently launched two public consultations. The ‘Proposed EU Platform for External Cooperation and Development’ takes a look at setting up a platform to oversee blending of loans and grants, while the second one focuses on the  future EU policy on Civil Society Organisations in development cooperation’.
