Heading 6 covers policy clusters (15) external action, and (16) pre-accession assistance. The former includes a new Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument, which brings together eight separate instruments and funds in the current MFF, as well as part of the European Development Fund (EDF), presently outside the MFF. In so doing, it increases the amount budgeted in this policy area by 10 %. Also within policy cluster (15) external action, the Humanitarian Aid Fund brings together the current MFF instrument of the same name and another part of the EDF, and is roughly stable (-1 %) compared with the same policy area in the current MFF in EU-27 terms. The margin provided under this heading amounts to 2.7 % of the allocation.
