EU should improve institutional coordination

According to a new report by OECD, presented this week to the Parliament,  EU development aid programmes run the risk of poor institutional coordination despite positive improvements in recent years.
In the words of Wiske Jult from 11.11.11, the Belgian platform of Concord, once again criticizes the External Action Service as “failing to integrate development policy in its remit and clarify its role vis-à-vis the Commission”.
On a positive note, Olivier Consolo, Director of Concord, the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs,  states that “overall, EU aid has improved in several key areas such as working more closely with partner countries [and]  also shows progress in establishing common standards and principles for development policy across 27 member states”.  Nonetheless, Mr. Consolo suggests that the EU should follow the call of the OECD “to continue to push to meet commitments to give 0.7% of their GNI to development aid with a clear binding roadmap to achieve the 2015 target”.
