Structure of Heading 6 and comparison of the various stages of the MFF proposals

In May 2018, the Commission proposed to replace the 2014-2020 MFF Heading 4 ‘Global Europe’ with a new Heading 6, entitled ‘Neighbourhood and the World’ (Figure 9). The proposed heading has a simplified structure, including a new broad instrument: the NDICI, which absorbs a number of currently separate instruments and also integrates the off-budget EDF. This broad instrument will be complemented by: the traditional standalone Instrument for pre-accession assistance (IPA) III; humanitarian aid; funding for common foreign and security policy; overseas countries and territories (OCTs) incl. Greenland, the European Instrument for Nuclear Safety, and others. In addition and outside the EU budget, the High Representative, with support from the Commission, proposed in 2018 the setting up of a European Peace Facility to cover military expenditure in relation to partner countries.
