2015 is a crucial year for development cooperation: on the one hand we reach the deadline for the millennium goals and on the other hand we will set course for a new orientation of sustainable development cooperation. Under the motto "Our world, our dignity, our future", the development cooperation of the EU and its Member States will be presented to the main public.
We post our activities on development cooperation on the European Year for Development website.
