MILLENNIUM GOALS: EU, AFTER 2015 NO TO POVERTY, YES TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT” “” “

Today, the European Commission adopted a memo to launch the fundamental principles to fund the fight against poverty and to support sustainable development after 2015, when the date of allocation of the current Millennium Development Goals will be due. The Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, welcomed such initiative, because it is "another big step forward in the implementation of the future post-2015 framework". "To make progress in politics, we need to use all the available resources and find new, innovative and reliable ways to fund the eradication of poverty and achieve long-term sustainable development". The EU Executive’s memo reviews several available financial resources, from public to private ones, both nationally and internationally, and is based on the recent political document "A dignified life for everyone: ending poverty and giving the world a sustainable future", where the focus has been shifted from "what" to put in the future development framework to "how" to fund it, the Commissioner explained.” “
