A vision for the post-2015 development agenda

Today the European Commission set out its views on global efforts that will be needed to eradicate poverty and boost sustainable development.  The Communication on a “Global Partnership for Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development after 2015” has been jointly prepared by the High Representative and Vice President, Federica Mogherini,  Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, and Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella. It has been agreed with First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, who holds horizontal responsibility for sustainable development. While putting forward proposals on how the international community should organise its action to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, it also shows how the EU and its Member States could contribute to the international effort.
