EU policies still undermining the fight against poverty, say NGOs

07 november 2011

EU policies are continuing to seriously undermine rights in developing countries, says a new report published by the confederation of European development NGOs: CONCORD.

The report, entitled ‘Spotlight on EU Policy Coherence for Development’ being launched today, shows that much of the good work being done by EU aid is undone by other EU policies. The report comes at an important time, as the EU is set to reform its agricultural, trade and development policies.
