Countries in Need Deserve Coherent EU Policy, say MEPs

The EU must make policies that affect developing countries more consistent, focus on the neediest, and set timetables for achieving measurable sustainable development goals, urged MEPs at a European Development Days high-level panel and a press conference in Brussels on 17 October. The panel sought ways to ensure that the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals drives inclusive growth.
Opening the panel, Michael Cashman (S&D, UK) insisted that the post-2015 set of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) should be practical, measurable and time-limited. “Rio+20 was a wasted opportunity to build on the way the MDGs have focused global attention on the needs of extremely poor people. What was lacking was commitment to timetables or outcomes, and all of us are to blame. We need defined and measurable sustainable development goals”, he said.
