The Treaty on European Union introduced specific objectives for the Development Cooperation Policy of the Community. Articles 130uy afford the Community an opportunity to eliminate the inconsistencies of the past which have arisen through the gradual and patchwork emergence of the Community's Development Cooperation Policy. The also give the Community a much-needed opportunity to adopt an integrated and coherent policy which will promote the economic and social development of all developing countries and their gradual integration into the world economy, and which will make a significant contribution to the campaign against poverty in developing countries.Beginning with an overview of the scope, objectives, and development of the policy up to 1992, this valuable study goes on to analyze the region-specific application of the Community's Development Cooperation Policy by examining the relationships established through the LomÃ© Conventions with the countries of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, and through other agreements with the countries of the Mediterranean, Latin America and Asia. In each chapter, the focus of attention is the trading relationship established with the Community. Chapter 6 is an examination of two problems of coordination; between the Development of Cooperation Policy and other Community policies; and between the Community Policy and those of the Member States.The conclusion emerging from the discussion is that one very important area of coordination was omitted from the provisions of Articles uy, namely the coordination of the instruments of development cooperation themselves. The final chapter proposes a new Development Cooperation Policy for the Community to meet new objectives set by Articles 130uy.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of seventeen goals and 169 targets, with accompanying indicators, which were agreed by UN member states to frame their policy agendas for the fifteen-year period from 2015 to 2030. Written by three authors who have been engaged in the development of the SDGs from the beginning, this book offers an insider view of the process and a unique entry into what will be seen as one of the most significant negotiations and global policy agendas of the twenty-first century. The book reviews how the SDGs were developed, what happened in key meetings and how this transformational agenda, which took more than three years to negotiate, came together in September 2015. It dissects and analyzes the meetings, organizations and individuals that played key roles in their development. It provides fascinating insights into the subtleties and challenges of high-level negotiation processes of governments and stakeholders, and into how the SDGs were debated, formulated and agreed. It is essential reading for all interested in the UN, sustainable development and the future of the planet and humankind.
The book is broken into three parts that systematically integrate vulnerability-stress models of psychopathology with a developmental psychopathological approach, thus bridging the gap between what up to now have been largely two separate sub-disciplines. Brings together leading experts in the field of vulnerability, stress, specific vulnerabilities to psychological disorders, psychopathological disorders, and clinical interventions. In order to facilitate a consistent focus throughout the book, contributing authors were given explicit guidelines and outlines to follow for chapters in each of the various parts.
