The main instrument of AECID for the funding of Spanish NGOs is the multi-annual program. Three are being implemented in the Philippines, with implementation period until 2018, two of them in a consortium with NGOs:
- InteRed, FRS and Codespa. Local governance, community strengthening and risk prevention in Caraga and Bicol.
- Save the Children Spain and Acción contra el Hambre. Strengthening disaster preparedness and improving effectiveness in response to humanitarian crises.
- Manos Unidas. Strengthening Disaster Preparedness and Improving Effectiveness in Response to Humanitarian Crises.
The sectors of incidence of these programs coincide with the two Strategic Orientations highlighted in the Country Partnership Framework of the Spanish Cooperation in the Philippines 2014-2017.
In addition to the multi-annual programs, AECID has the annual calls for proposals for Spanish NGOs.
