Lisbon Treaty: implications for EU development cooperation

The expected introduction of the Lisbon Treaty in 2010 will make major changes in the way EU external action is conducted. While this carries some risks for EU development cooperation, participants were keen to stress the opportunities it presents. In terms of expectations, participants generally hoped that with progress in EU integration and a stronger EU profile in the world, EU development cooperation would be strengthened by the forthcoming changes, that these would promote greater efficiency and improved quality of delivery to partners in the South. Expectations were also high in terms of the new Treaty provisions encouraging greater consistency in EU external action and a good framework for encouraging policy coherence for development (PCD) and the necessary policy space for development cooperation to thrive.
