In three communications approved on 2 March 2006, the European Commission proposed concrete measures to improve the effectiveness of EU development aid and external assistance. These proposals followed up on the EU’s commitments in 2005 to scale-up aid substantially and to improve its impact and its speed of delivery, in order to meet the challenges of the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. The Commission proposed an action plan including joint programming of assistance with Member States and saw the Union on track to deliver on its financial commitments.
