This paper reviews those aspects of EU development policy that remain the focus for debate, both organisationally and politically, in what is an increasingly hostile global economic environment. It will assess whether the EC has delivered on its commitments to a ‘poverty focused’ aid programme and whether the objectives of the EU’s development policy need to be restated in a revised ‘Development Consensus’. It examines issues such as the future of the ACP group, the appropriateness of the balance of instruments and, in particular, whether EDF budgetisation is desirable. Finally it will discuss the challenges of achieving ‘policy coherence for development’ and of establishing an agreed ‘division of labour’ between the EC and Member States
