Council discussions on development

The 3124th Council meeting on Foreign Affairs held in Brussels onĀ 14 November 2011 adopted conclusions that constitute the EU position with a view to conducting the performance review of the 10th European Development Fund together with the ACP states (16461/11). The performance review assesses the financial performance, as well as the quantitative and qualitative performance of the 10th EDF (2008-2013), and in particular the results and the impact, measured in terms of progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. The Council also adopted conclusions on the annual report concerning the EU's development and external assistance policies and their implementation in 2010 (16768/11) and considered proposals for the future approach to EU budget support to third countries (15561/11).

The European Parliament this week debated the work of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly in 2010 and passed a report on accountability in development finance.
