Post-2015 development agenda
EU development ministers exchanged views on financing for development in the context of the negotiations towards the new post-2015 development agenda.
The Council adopted conclusions setting out the EU position for the conference on financing for development in July and the UN summit on the post-2015 development agenda in September.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, said: "What we agreed today is a solid basis for a EU action and leadership in the upcoming negotiation process." The Council renewed its collective commitment to achieve the 0.7% ODA/GNI target within the time frame of the post-2015 agenda. "It is a clear sign of the EU's commitment to poverty eradication and global sustainable development", the High Representative added.
