Ashton signs European Consensus on Development

Catherine Ashton, the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, signed on Thursday, 3 April the 'European Consensus on Development' in the presence of Parliament President Martin Schulz, Development Committee Chair Eva Joly and rapporteur Charles Goerens.
 
"The signature underscores that the EU's determination to eradicate poverty is as vital today, the last year for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, as it was when the Consensus was first signed at the end of 2005, before the creation of the EEAS", declared Schulz and Ashton jointly. 
 
In a resolution prepared by the Development committee and adopted in July 2012, Parliament had emphasised the need to preserve the "consensual character of all EU institutions regarding development cooperation" and had called on the High Representative "to add her signature to the European Consensus on Development, since the European External Action Service over which she presides has significant programming responsibilities" for development cooperation.

Parliament adopts "European Year for Development 2015" Decision

2015 will be designated the 'European Year for Development', following a vote on 2 April in which the EP plenary overwhelmingly approved the legal act which had been negotiated over the past few months. The motto of the European Year will be "Our world, our dignity, our future", thus underscoring that human aspiration and the right to a "life in dignity does not stop at the borders of our continent", explained MEP Charles Goerens, Parliament's rapporteur.
 
According to the Decision adopted by Parliament, the European Year for Development shall foster the direct involvement, critical thinking and active interest of citizens in development cooperation and help "explain why it is important that Europe contributes to eradicating poverty" beyond its borders, said Goerens. Development Committee Chair Eva Joly recalled that 2015 will be the year in which the world 'takes stock of the achievements and failures of the Millennium Development Goals' and decides on the future development agenda.
 
The Council is expected to formally endorse the legal act, as adopted by Parliament, on 14 April 2014.

Dobrodošli! Ime mi je Eva Joly. Sem francoska poslanka v Evropskem parlamentu v skupini Zelenih in predsednica Odbora Evropskega parlamenta za razvoj.
Na svetu več kot milijarda ljudi živi v skrajni revščini, še več je takih, ki se spopadajo z lakoto in boleznijo ter nimajo dostopa do zdravstvenega varstva ali izobraževanja. Prebivalci revnih držav se poleg tega vse bolj soočajo z uničujočimi vplivi podnebnih sprememb.
Evropski državljani so trdno prepričani, da je dolžnost Evropske unije izkoreniniti revščino in trpljenje na svetu, kjer je ob pravični porazdelitvi vsega dovolj za vse. Večina Evropejcev je, kot jaz, ponosnih, da Evropa za razvojno pomoč daje več kakor kdor koli drug – milijarde evrov vsako leto.
Moje delo in delo članov Odbora za razvoj je zagotoviti, da Evropska unija stori največ, kar lahko, da bi pomagala tistim, ki našo pomoč potrebujejo, istočasno pa poskrbeti, da svoj denar izven Unije preudarno trošimo.
S čim se torej ukvarjamo? Pomagamo oblikovati proračun. Skrbno nadzorujemo Evropsko komisijo in vse druge, ki praktično izvajajo evropsko razvojno politiko ter humanitarno pomoč. Skupaj z državami članicami EU oblikujemo zakonodajo, ki uokvirja naše razvojne dejavnosti.
Pogosto se srečujemo tudi s politiki in strokovnjaki z vsega sveta in se pogovarjamo o razmerah na terenu in kaj tam dejansko potrebujejo. Kadar lahko, se gremo o tem prepričati na lastne oči, v kraje, kot so Gaza, Haiti in Nepal.
Na naši spletni strani pa vas čaka še veliko več podrobnosti.
