Concord skeptical regarding on policy coherence for development

Concord recently published a spotlight report on the European Union (EU) policies dealing with development, food security, climate change, and natural resources against the Lisbon Treaty’s provision on Policy Coherence and Development (PCD). These provisions should ensure that the policies of the EU are centered on battling poverty across the world. The report found that the institutional tools put toward correcting poor policies are ineffective in both gathering data and delivering PCD. Less than twenty percent of assessments done by the EU show any impact on development. While individual member states have functioning PCD institutions, no one state can deliver political commitment, clear objectives, or strategies in effective ways to reach specific goals. Additionally, the report stated that there are inconsistencies between the objectives set out by the EU and the policies that were put in place to address climate change, food security, natural resources, and climate change. Concord recommends changes to the EU’s policies so that the world’s poorest will more directly benefit.
