AECID works in ED from two key aspects: as a financier, being NGDOs its main associate in this sense and as a prime mover of coherence, complementarity and coordination of Education for Development actions. These Strategic Lines can be summarised as follows:
To financie the group of all the cooperation actors: NGDOs, new social movements, Universities, companies and companies organizations, social economy companies, media, social platforms and international networks, Local Authorities networks included. These actions are promoted under coordination and complementarity principles. AECID currently has 10 ED Conventions for different NGDOs
To promote coordination and complementarity spaces for the group of actors from Spanish Cooperation, through direct actions carried out by the AECID, alone or coordinated with other actors through specific actions.
In this sense, AECID has been working in coordination with the Education and Professional Training Ministry since 2009 in the "Teachers for Development" Programme.
To watch over coherence in ED of the whole of Public Administrations, establishing coordination and complementarity spaces of the whole General State Administration, within its competences and strengthen the already existent coordination structures.
