Industrialised countries have not respected their commitment to allocate 0.7% of their gross national income (GNI) to development. This failure has cost poor countries €1.8 billion since 2002, according to a new report. EurActiv Germany reports. By adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, UN member states committed to working to end poverty, hunger and inequality by 2030. The SDGs were also designed to promote education and sustainable ways of life. International leaders will meet this week to adopt the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

According to ZimTrade, Zimbabwe's trade development and promotion organisation, the Netherlands presents a growing market for organic fruits, particularly dates, figs, mangoes, pineapples, avocados and guavas. The import bill for mangoes, mangosteens and guavas in the Netherlands has been on an upward trend, increasing by 38 percent from $197 million in 2011 to $272 million in 2015. As the Netherlands does not produce these fruits, it is one of the largest importers globally. In 2015, amongst the European Union (EU) 28 member countries, the Netherlands accounted for 25 percent of the total import bill ($929 million) for mangoes, mangosteens and guavas.
