Navigating a complex funding environment
The European Union, including its Member States, is the world’s largest donor to global poverty alleviation and economic development, accounting for nearly two-thirds (some 64%) of Official Development Assistance (ODA) world-wide.
The EU funding environment for population and reproductive health has often confused professionals in the field, including both NGOs seeking funds and donors seeking to improve policy and funding co-ordination and harmonization. DSW tries to make things clearer for NGOs interested in affecting the policies and accessing the funds.

What about Reproductive Health?
The guidebook What about Reproductive Health? is designed to help EC delegations to easily integrate reproductive health into their existing portfolios including general budget support and sector development programmes, but also to assist with financing proposals and agreements, calls for proposals, tenders and other documents.
