COHERENCE OF POLICIES
Coherence of development policies
Luxembourg’s Development Cooperation seeks to promote the coherence of development policies. This makes it possible to ensure that all Luxembourg’s actions in a specific country are properly structured and coherent and make an effective contribution to sustainable development.
Interministerial committee for development cooperation
The Law of 9 May 2012 amending the amended law of 6 January 1996 on development cooperation and humanitarian action defines the responsibilities of the Interministerial Committee for Development Cooperation (ICDC). It has the remit of giving its opinion on the broad outlines of development cooperation policy and the coherence of development policies. The law also asks the government to submit an annual report to the Chamber of Deputies on the work of the Committee, including the issue of the coherence of development policies. The Grand Ducal Regulation of 7 August 2012 lays down the make-up and mode of operation of the Interministerial Committee for Development Cooperation.
