A mapping report on EU-funded external cyber capacity building actions

EU CyberNet has compiled a mapping report, which gives an overview of all EU funded external cyber capacity building programmes and projects (actions) around the world in 2022.

The report is an initiative of the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) of the European Commission, conducted in cooperation with the European External Action Service (EEAS) and the Directorates-General for International Partnerships (INTPA) and Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (NEAR).

The accounted actions in the report were all implemented on the cut-off date of 1 January 2023. While the report will be updated on a yearly basis, EU CyberNet aims to keep the online mapping up-to-date on an ongoing basis.

Altogether, 33 ongoing EU funded cyber capacity building actions were mapped in 2022 with an estimated overall funding of 178,95 MEUR. The majority of the actions focus on cybersecurity (12), while 11 actions address cybercrime and 2 deal with cyber diplomacy. Geographically, the most funds have been directed to the EU’s Neighbourhood (11 actions operate in the East, 7 in the Western Balkans and 4 in the South), followed by Sub-Saharan Africa (9 actions), Asia-Pacific (7 actions) and Latin America & the Caribbean region (5 separate actions).
