Joint Programming Guidance

We are delighted to share with you the new Joint Programming Guidance - a collection of good practices from around the world, offering examples and templates and addressing issues that are frequently raised by EU and EU Member States field staff when engaging in Joint Programming.

We hope that this Guidance will inspire practitioners to come up with effective approaches for a closer and more coordinated European collaboration in development cooperation and external action. The support that Europeans can jointly offer to partner countries is becoming more important in the context of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals.

We are interested to receive comments for this Joint Programming Guidance, so feel free to add your feedback in the discussion section.

* this Joint Programming Guidance consolidates and replaces the previous 2015 Joint Programming Pack.

New Joint Programming Guidance issued for EU Delegations, but is a useful guide for all European colleagues working in the field for the EU and the EU Member States.

It is available in French and Spanish too.



Thanks for sharing and thanks for including Nicaragua as an example how to build a common result framework.

Dear Francisco,

Many thanks for your thumbs-up.

We have followed closely your work on the joint results framework linked to the SDGs. It is a direction of work that will be systematically pursued by the EU across the board and we are definitely going to follow how the European group in Nicaragua will implement and use their JRF and get lessons learnt from your experience.

Please keep us informed about the progress of your common results framework, and hope we will have the chance in the near future to discuss details of this work - maybe at the 'Global Workshop on Joint Programming' in Cambodia in December 2018?
