BOND (British Overseas NGOs for Development) have submitted a paper with recommendations for the joint strategy. These include in the areas of: the EU’s role in Africa; policy coherence; financing and delivery of aid; and monitoring and review.
- “BOND believes that the relationship between the EU and Africa needs to establish a serious political dialogue rooted in mutual accountability and respect. Both the EU and Africa need to demonstrate a shared commitment to the promotion of all human rights, gender equality and the fight against poverty by advancing the principles enshrined in the Millennium Declaration, the Cotonou Agreement and other international commitments taken by African and EU countries as reflected in the European Consensus on Development. All sectors of societies in Africa and the EU should be an integral part of the partnership, especially through the pro-active engagement of parliaments and civil society on both continents.”
