In recognition of the fact that policies in areas other than development, such as trade, energy and migration, can also profoundly affect the poor in developing countries, the EU has affirmed ‘Policy Coherence for Development’ as an important principle for achieving more effective development cooperation. This new CEPS study analyses whether policy-making processes in the EU Council provide sufficient scope for development inputs to be made in 12 key policy areas: trade, environment, climate change, security, agriculture, fisheries, social dimension of globalisation, employment and decent work, migration, research and innovation, information society, transport and energy. The study also includes coverage of the policy-making processes in the European Commission as it initiates and defends most of the policies being discussed in the EU Council. Its findings point to the highly segregated character of EU policy-making and provide interesting insights into the internal challenges the EU will need to address in order to fulfil its goal of achieving greater coherence in its (external) policy-making.
This is the online version of the 2006 Atlas mapping donor assistance from the European Union. It provides maps of both the sources and recipients of donor aid, as well as development indicators and trade and migration flows which illustrate this aid.
The objective of this e-alert is to quickly and regularly provide the actors interested in the implementation of the new EU Strategy towards Africa with relevant information and analysis on the decisions and processes that will have an impact on the implementation of the strategy. This newsletter is part of a project funded by the European Commission and implemented by ECORYS to strengthen the coordination, complementarity and coherence (the “three Cs”) of EU action towards Africa. Highlights from this issue:
- AU news: Focus on the Banjul Summit
- EU news: EPA negotiations
- EU-AU relations: The EU Strategy towards Africa

In May 2005 DGDC launched a national awareness-raising campaign to get the public interested in the Millennium Development Goals. The Millennium campaign is being conducted with the mobile information exhibition “The Bridge of Solidarity”, which will certainly continue to travel throughout the country until 2007, with a series of articles and special radio and television spots about the MDGs in the Flemish and French-language media, as well as a poster campaign in the Belgian train stations. The fourth strand of the Millennium campaign is the publication of “Bamtaré in 2015, or the true story of the Millennium Development Goals in a small town somewhere in Africa”.
