"Keep your promises to the poor!"

Concord Danmark has together with the international aid watchdog AidWatch launched the first citizen initiative called Keep your promises to the poor! 

 

Keep your promises to the poor! puts focus on the fact that only six member states of the EU are paying the development aid that all member states in 2005 agreed on paying.

The richest countries (EU-15) agreed to pay 0,51% of the GNI in official development assistance (ODA) every year, while the poorer countries (EU-12) agreed to pay 0,17% of their GNI. These numbers are very small so it is neither difficult, unfair nor unrealistic to meet the promises.  These numbers represent the 2010-midterm reviews. The EU has like the UN defined development goals (MDG) and to reach these the ODA for 2015 is set even higher: The EU-15 has promised to pay 0,7% of their GNI in 2015 and the EU-12 has promised to pay 0,33%. These goals seem very unrealistic now if the countries don’t take action.

That is why Concord Danmark is collecting signatures from citizens all over Europe who believe that we should take responsibility and keep our promises to the poor regarding development aid.  So please click on the link provided below to show your support for this important initiative.

New Challenges, New Beginnings: Next Steps in European Development Cooperation
 
To coincide with the inauguration of the new European Commission and a revamped EU institutional architecture under the Lisbon Treaty, four leading think-tanks have called for a new impetus to tackle today's global challenges. The report titled "New Challenges, New Beginnings: Next Steps in European Development Cooperation" is a joint effort of ODI (UK), FRIDE (Spain), DIE (Germany) and ECDPM, the Maastricht-based European Centre for Development Policy Management.

The report contains 12 chapters dealing with a broad range of topics, including peace and security, migration, climate change, trade, development finance and policy coherence for development.

3 février 2010, Maastricht

Pour faire écho à la mise en place d'une nouvelle Commission Européenne et au renouvellement de l'architecture institutionnelle induit par l'application du Traité de Lisbonne, quatre think-tanks majeurs appellent à plus d'impulsion pour être à la hauteur des enjeux globaux actuels.  Le rapport s'intitule : "Nouveaus défis, nouveaux départs : les prochaines étapes de la coopération européenne au développement" ; il est le fruit d'une collaboration entre ODI (Royaume-Uni), FRIDE (Espagne), DIE (Allemagne), et ECDPM, le Centre Européen de Gestion des Politiques de Développement, basé à Maastricht'.

Le rapport comprend 12 chapitres abordant de nombreux sujets, dont la paix et la sécurité, les migrations, le changement climatique, le commerce, le financement du développement et la cohérence des politiques en faveur du développement.
