A Better World, Ireland’s new policy for international development, has been formally launched by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Tánaiste Simon Coveney.
A Better World is a whole of government policy. It provides the framework for Ireland’s expanding development cooperation programme, in line with the Government’s commitment to reaching the UN target of allocating 0.7% of our GNI to official development assistance by 2030. It outlines Ireland’s vision of a more equal, peaceful and sustainable world. It charts a clear way forward to achieve this vision, shaping and protecting our stability, our prosperity, our shared interests and our common future.
