Multilateral cooperation

In 2014, Luxembourg’s development cooperation allocated 89,67 million euros, the equivalent of 27,90% of total ODA, to multilateral aid. Luxembourg thus supported several multilateral organisations: UN organisations with 36,92 million euros, the European Union with 25,36 million euros, World Bank programmes with 17,02 million euros and regional development banks with 6,87 million euros.

Multilateral cooperation is implemented via two channels: direct contributions to the international organisations’ budgets (mandatory, voluntary and thematic) and the funding of “multi-bi” programmes and projects. Luxembourg has special relations with a limited number of multilateral actors in the key sectors identified by Luxembourg’s cooperation.
