CARITAS Europa paper: The European Union can make MDGs possible

This paper from Caritas Europa starts with a description of Caritas identity and vision of poverty and development fromthe perspective of the Catholic Social Teaching and the relevance of the MDGs in this respect. Then, we present Caritas’ views on today’s global context and the present challenges that need to be taken into consideration to achieve the MDGs by 2015. The paper moves on to reviewing briefly several MDGs, which correspond to areas in which Caritas works, ranging from hunger and HIVAIDS to climate change. It explainw the catholic foundation of the Caritas action and provide examples of concrete projects supported by European Caritas organisations. On this basis, it proposes policy recommendations to EU policy-makers and programme managers for improving the situation. Finally, the paper closes with additional policy recommendations to EU actors on the roleof the EU in the MDG+10 review process and general EU development policy.
