A briefing paper written jointly by EURODAD, Oxfam and Action Aid, explores EU member state achievements regarding their announcements and actual commitments on three fronts:
•Aid – improving the quantity and quality of international aid
•Debt – easing the burden of unsustainable debt
•International Trade – making the rules of world trade more fair.
They consider the heroes and villains in the EU’s 25-member bloc by asking:
are they collectively doing enough to make sure that the EU seizes the opportunity to make poverty history?
The key issues raised are : the EU must take positive action on improving the quantity and quality of international aid; easing the burden of unsustainable debt; and making the rules of world trade more fair.
On aid, the EU could play a pivotal role in helping to achieve the increases that are necessary in order to meet the MDGs by the year 2015. In the past, EU commitments have acted as a catalyst to stimulate action by other major aid donors, such as the
USA. The EU should achieve an average level of 0.7 per cent of GNI allocated to overseas aid by 2010. Sadly, the EU has a mixed record.
