An allocation of €200 Million from the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) has been allocated to the new Water Facility. A new call for proposals was launched on the 11th of  February, 2010. The ACP-EU Water Facility was set up in 2004, with the principal objective of providing water and basic sanitation to the poor, and to improve water management governance in African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
In a challenge ahead, Europe has 2 main contributions to make: development policy thinking and development aid delivery. Development policy is a key part of the "Europe 2020" vision presented by president Barroso. In particular, as we look ahead to a "global Europe", it is in times of development challenges that the EU can become a champion of global governance – challenges which include world economic recovery, climate change, migration, food security and making progress towards the Millennium Development Goals.
