AidWatch Reports

Since 2005, development NGOs from all 28 EU countries have come together every year through the AidWatch initiative to produce the annual AidWatch report.

CONCORD AidWatch has monitored and made recommendations on the quality and quantity of aid provided by EU members states and the European Commission since 2005. The AidWatch initiative carries out ongoing advocacy, research, media activities and campaigns on a wide range of aid-related issues throughout a year.
