Marking the beginning of a new era in the relationship between the African, Caribbean and Pacific states and the European Union, the Cotonou Agreement was signed seven years ago, and in 2005, the EU undertook ambitious commitments to increase its aid until 2010 and to improve the contribution of non-aid polices to the development agenda. The Cotonou Agreement has often been hailed as an exemplary agreement, serving as a model for other EU agreements with third parties.
The social, economic, political, cultural and environmental aspects of sustainable development are integrated throughout the agreement, and the 2005 revision places greater emphasis on a results-orientated dialogue on good governance, human rights, democratic principles and the rule of law.
This handy booklet contains contributions by high-level stakeholders from both the ACP countries and the EU, as well as an overview of the Millennium development goals, targets and indicators, and of course the full text of the agreement including all annexes and protocols.
