New reports assess EU policy coherence for development

The European Commission published a progress report of the Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) approach launched in 2005 as part of the European Consensus on Development. The PCD review published in late September says that its framework “allows for a systematic exploration of the effects that EU policies other than aid might have on development and on the achievement of the MDGs. The European Commission claims that these are “powerful mechanisms to promote PCD”. However the report also acknowledges several obstacles as: (i) a “lack of awareness of development issues” by other ministries; (ii) a “difficulty of providing evidence about the ultimate impact of non development policies on poverty in developing countries”; (iii) a “lack of political will and the limited priority given to world poverty reduction”. This among other issues were discussed during the European Development Days in Stockholm.
