The objective of the study is to provide an overview of the evolution of and the results achieved by EU development cooperation with Sub-Saharan Africa during the period 2013-2018. It aims to feed into further policy discussion and research inquiry, and complements the Dutch government’s regular reporting to parliament of results achieved in EU development cooperation.

The study, commissioned by the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, presents a structured literature review of EU development cooperation with Sub-Saharan Africa over the period 2013-2018. It addresses three main questions:

Policy commitments: What were the EU’s intentions as regards development cooperation with Sub-Saharan Africa during the period 2013-2018?

Funding: To what extent were these intentions reflected in allocation patterns during the same period?

Results: What do we know about the results of EU development cooperation with SSA during the period under review?
