European donor coordination in developing countries and sexual reproductive health / family planning

In the spirit of the international aid effectiveness agenda, the EU is committed to better coordinate, align and harmonise its development assistance with that of its Member States and other like-minded donors.

This factsheet presents the main findings of this study which analysed the coordination mechanisms used by European donors in three case study countries: Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Zambia.
