Promoting Coherence Tools

Mechanism and Ways to Put Coherence into Practice

Eine Veranstaltung von ÖFSE und EADI in Kooperation mit VIDC, KEF, OEZA.

Looking at the commitments of the EU member countries in their development

policy, the precept of coordination, complementary and coherence appear

already in 1992 in the Maastricht Treaty. While coordination and

complementary are being addressed as important technical issues within the

debate of "Aid Effectiveness", coherence refers much more to the policy

level, where different national interests compete with development policy.

The importance of a coherent development policy has been recognised since

1992 in many papers and documents, but implementation is still being

hampered by the dominance of national (economic) interests. In the last

couple of years, a lot of research has been done on institutional approaches

to help governments to achieve policy coherence in support of development.
