Commission Communication "Beyond 2015 - towards a comprehensive and integrated approach to financing poverty eradication and sustainable development" and EU Accountability Report 2013 on Financing for Development

On 16 July 2013, the European Commission adopted a Communication putting forward possible elements of a common EU approach to financing post-2015, as well as the 2013 EU Accountability Report on Financing for Development, which analyses and illustrates progress by the EU and the 28 Member States on their financing for development commitments over the past year.

Commission Communication "Beyond 2015: towards a comprehensive and integrated approach to financing poverty eradication and sustainable development" and EU Accountability Report 2013 on Financing for Development

Elements of the package

The package consists of:

The Communication and the full Report are also available for download in a single file pdf - 8 MB [8 MB] . And the Commission prepared a short summary of the report pdf - 15 MB [15 MB] .

In addition, all Member States and the Commission this year again agreed to the publication of their individual replies to the preparatory Accountability Report questionnaire. The Commission has prepared short "Donor Profiles" on the basis of these replies.

Main findings

Building upon the "Decent life for all" Communication (February 2013), and taking forward the Council Conclusions on "The Overarching post-2015 Agenda" (June 2013), the Communication argues that our approach to financing post-2015 should be comprehensive, integrated, policy-focused and country-based. Mutual accountability is needed to reflect shared responsibilities. It advocates updating the comprehensive approach of the UN Financing for Development process – established in Monterrey (2002) and Doha (2008) – to embrace the sustainable development dimension (building upon last year’s Rio+20 conference) and better cover thematic elements that have gained prominence over recent years (e.g. role of Science, Technology and Innovation).

The accompanying Accountability Report responds to the Council’s invitation to the Commission to monitor progress – in the EU and Member States – on EU Financing for Development commitments. Novelties this year include a more in-depth coverage of Science, Technology and Innovation as well as of domestic resource management to reflect recent policy developments.

The Report shows that over the past year, there has been:

  • Substantial progress on EU commitments concerning private investment; trade; finance relating to climate change adaptation and mitigation; Science, Technology and Innovation; and innovative financing sources and instruments.
  • Moderate progress on EU commitments concerning domestic resource mobilisation; debt sustainability; remittances; biodiversity protection; and development effectiveness.
  • Limited or no progress on EU commitments concerning Official Development Assistance volumes.
