In December 2014, the Council of the European Union adopted its conclusions on a transformative post-2015 agenda. “The Council reaffirms the vision and priorities of the EU and its Member States as set out in its Conclusions of June 2013 and emphasises that poverty eradication and sustainable development are mutually reinforcing and intrinsically linked.”
Among others, the document also highlights the fact that “strengthening civil society and ensuring an enabling environment for civil society actors is essential.”
