El Comisario Europeo de Desarrollo, Andris Piebalgs, anunciará hoy una nueva ayuda de la UE por un importe de 2 500 millones EUR para América Latina en el período 2014‑2020 (incluida financiación para programas regionales y para dotaciones bilaterales a los países subvencionables).
Brussels, 24 March 2014
European Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, will today announce new EU support of €2.5 billion for Latin America for the years 2014 to 2020 (including funding for regional programmes, and for the bilateral envelopes to the eligible countries).
Realising that its policies in areas other
than development had some unintended impacts on third countries and building
on the OECD work in this area, the Union elaborated a concept of Policy
Coherence for Development aimed at strengthening synergies between EU polices
other than aid and development objectives. Careful design and implementation
of EU policies were to lead to increased effectiveness of development aid
and non aid policies altogether, and to an efficient use of resources,
by limiting policy incoherence and developing synergies.
RAPPORT DE LA COMMISSION AU CONSEIL,
AU PARLEMENT EUROPÉEN, AU COMITÉ ÉCONOMIQUE ET SOCIAL EUROPÉEN ET AU COMITÉ
Development and external assistance are
now central policies of the EU. They are major components of its international
influence and effective instruments of its soft power. Their main purpose
is to fight poverty and promote economic development and democracy. The
present decade has seen the rise of the EU as a leading actor in the development
field. The figures are impressive: the amounts committed have increased
by 90% since 2001. In 2008, the EU and its Member States were again the
biggest international donor, providing almost 60% of global aid.
