EU aid ministers vow unity in global anti-poverty talks

The EU should take a central role in shaping a new framework for the United Nations’ poverty-fighting targets when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire in 2015, European development ministers have agreed at the informal meeting held in Dublin from 11 to 12 February.
The ministers have also agreed that the EU will speak with one voice in future international negotiations on new targets for sustainable growth and eradicating extreme poverty.
Joe Costello, the Irish trade and development minister, said on Tuesday (12 February) that “ensuring a unified EU position to the negotiations to agree a new global development framework” was a priority of his country’s presidency of the EU Council.
The eight MDGs, agreed in 2000, include ending extreme poverty and hunger, expanding education, improving healthcare, and promoting sustainable growth.
