The report looks at how some EU policies negatively affect developing countries in the areas of financing for development, food security, natural resources and climate change.
• At least $859bn was lost from developing countries in 2010 alone through illicit financial flows. This is 13 times the amount the EU spent on development aid in 2012.
• In tax revenue alone, at least $100bn was lost from developing countries through insufficient international tax policies.
• The EU is not respecting its commitment to Policy Coherence for Development, a Lisbon Treaty obligation that aims to make sure EU policies do not undermine development objectives.
