member; Special committee on the policy challenges and budgetary resources for a sustainable European Union after 2013 (2010-06-17--2011-06-30)3
"Mr President, funds that have been made available for development cooperation must actually serve development purposes, so that we can help cushion the blows to poor countries from the financial and economic crisis for which they were not to blame. If we ensure that they are integrated into the global economy, they will become a new market and thus, part of the solution. Development funds – funds under the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI) – are intended for this purpose; for combating poverty and not for the EU’s cooperation with industrialised countries. Neither should the release of funds for the reform of banana production – Banana Accompanying Measures (BAM) – be at the expense of current development programmes. In addition, amounts for strengthening democracy and human rights under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) must be maintained. The recent flooding in Pakistan has demonstrated once again that a rapid, effective reaction is called for – and not by dipping into the budget as an emergency measure, but instead by means of a structural amount for humanitarian aid. The EU must be able to act promptly and be able to continue to offer a contribution."@en1
