EU to go beyond a donor-recipient relationship with the Pacific region

According to the EU High Representative, Catherine Asthon, the EU aims to develop a more comprehensive partnership with the Pacific region, as this would successfully address issues of global importance, such as climate change, and which would go beyond the “mere” donor-recipient relationship currently in place. Furthermore, the Pacific islands are an alarming case of the adverse effects of climate change where rising sea levels have an impact upon every aspect of citizens' lives and hamper the economic development. Therefore, the EU has decided to reinforce its response to these raising challenges and issue a Communication ''Towards a renewed EU–Pacific development partnership'.
The Joint Communication by High Representative Ashton and the European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, pays special attention to addressing climate change and development in a tailored manner, and calls for more coordinated cooperation. It which will be  presented at Rio+20, that the development of a greener economy is essential to promoting long-term sustainable and inclusive growth, human health and well-being.
