We influence EU external policy to contribute to sustainable development, by identifying key issues, proposing solutions and promoting financing and funding geared to leaving no one behind.
Inequalities and sustainable economy
Through policy analysis, monitoring and advocacy, we urge the EU and its Member States to tackle rising inequalities worldwide and contribute to building a sustainable global economy.
Policy coherence for sustainable development
EU policies can affect countries outside the EU positively but also negatively. Working on the basis of ‘do no harm’, we want the EU to avoid undermining partner countries’ efforts to define and pursue their own path towards sustainable development and preferably to support them. We focus on two key areas: migration and trade.
Financing and funding for sustainable development
We monitor international donors’ commitments, including adherence to the development effectiveness principles and adequate programmes and funding for civil society, making sure that the ‘leave no one behind’ principle is incorporated, in order to achieve sustainable development for all people and the planet.
