DFID urges UK NGOs to apply for Brexit guarantee (Devex)
August 19, 2019
From the article:
The United Kingdom’s new international development secretary has urged British NGOs receiving funding from the European Union to take up the government’s offer to underwrite existing contracts in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
Mikaela Gavas, co-director of development cooperation in Europe at the Center for Global Development, told Devex that the “current rhetoric” around a no-deal Brexit, as seen in Sharma’s letter, was “severely hampering the U.K.’s relationship with its EU partners,” and that this could have knock-on effects for NGOs.
“Levels of trust are at an all-time low. This may also affect EU Member State funding for U.K. NGOs,” she said.
