How will you work for Sustainable Development - A litmus Test for EU Leaders



Abstract: Since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009, Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) has been a legal obligation of the EU and its Member States. Since then, CONCORD produced bi-annual ‘Spotlight on EU Policy Coherence for Development’ reports to raise the awareness of EU leaders and citizens on the need to change certain European domestic and external policies in order to make them coherent with the EU’s development objectives. With the 2015 adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, EU leaders committed to ensure policies are coherent with sustainable development. In a year of European Parliament elections and EU institutional renewal, CONCORD calls on all EU leaders to work towards a sustainable Europe by 2030. This CONCORD paper highlights how EU leaders should ensure they positively contribute to the sustainable development of partner countries, through a more integrated and long-term approach
