Heading 6 covers two policy clusters, external action and pre-accession assistance. The instruments under the heading focus on development assistance, humanitarian aid, the EU’s common foreign and security policy, and support for EU candidate countries. In the new programming period, within these policy areas, the programmes under heading 6 will tackle such issues as climate change, migration, human rights, democracy and rule of law, and security. In addition, since the outbreak of the pandemic, spending under heading 6 contributes to the implementation of the global EU response to Covid-19.
