The overall funding envelope for the 11th European Development Fund covers Africa Caribbean and Pacific countries, Overseas Territories, the European Investment Bank and Commission support costs. During negotiations in Brussels on the allocations to be set for Overseas Territories, no specific strategies were considered, although the UK Government was keen to ensure that the Territories were not disadvantaged in the final funding envelope agreed. DFID will encourage the British Overseas Territories to consider biodiversity issues when submitting applications to the fund.
