The European Consensus on Development was agreed upon in 2005 by the European Commission, the Parliament and EU’s member states. It includes common principles, objectives and commitments for EU’s development cooperation. Last year, the Union started discussing how its common external and development policies can be renewed in the light of Agenda 2030. The policy is to be updated later this spring.
ECDPM’s James Mackie explained the recent discussions and evolutions in this area. Read also his blog ‘What is the new European Consensus on Development for?‘
