Working Party on Development Cooperation
The working party is responsible for policy issues in the area of development. Consequently, the group deals with matters that cover a wide variety of topics.
The group works with matters such as EU policy coherence for development, aid effectiveness in EU development cooperation, and follow-up by the EU of different international commitments in the area of development. It also works with topics such as democracy and human rights in development policy, climate and environment linked to development, and gender equality issues, sexual and reproductive health and rights and measures targeting HIV/AIDS in development policy.
The group normally meets twice a week (Monday, Thursday).
