The AAP contains rules and priorities for the upcoming calls under this programme as well as the amounts available for which country. This information is relevant when preparing concept notes under NSA LA calls for proposals. Detailed information is to be found in the Annexes. Relevant for activities in Global Education (Objective 2) is Action Fiche 11.

Thematic priorities for Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) activities will be public support for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) agenda with focus on Africa and Policy Coherence for Development (PCD).
