Supporting inclusive and sustainable growth for human development
An 'Agenda for Change'
EU development policy moves forward
We live in changing, uncertain times. Today’s complex challenges require new solutions and new strategies to eliminate poverty. The European Commission is refocusing its efforts to increase aid impact, concentrate on fewer sectors and focus on countries most in need.
In October 2011, EU Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, presented the Agenda for Change of EU development policy and a new policy for EU budget support. ‘Representing more than 50% of global aid, the EU is already the biggest donor in the world. I want to make sure it remains the most effective one, too,’ the Commissioner said.
