The “New European Consensus on Development” is the EU and Member States joint strategy to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development. This new EU approach is based on the “five Ps” of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships.
Under the new Consensus poverty eradication remains the primary objective of development policy. It underlines the links between development and other policies, such as migration, environment, peace and security. It also integrates the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.
