2015-Watch Report 5 / 2008:
Poverty Eradication: From Rethoric to Results?

The fifth report in the series identified three major challenges for the EU in relation to its aid programme:

  • Improving its results-orientation towards the MDGs;
  • Ensuring accountability and promoting the proper division of powers to help effective aid administration
  • Fostering civil society as an essential partner for poverty eradication

There is a lack of explicit focus on measuring the results of the massive aid investments plus a complete lack of concentration on certain MDG targets including hunger. The first MDG aims to reduce hunger by 50% by 2015, yet in the EU’s development framework, policy documents and agreements, there is no specific reference to hunger eradication. 

2015-Watch Report 4 / 2007:
Halfway to 2015: Mid-Term-Review

To mark the mid-point towards that deadline, Alliance2015 presented its 4th 2015-Watch report The EU's contribution to the Millennium Development Goals - Halfway to 2015:Mid-term Review at the end of June 2007.

The fourth report in the 2015-Watch series measures the extent to which the EC's aid programme is oriented towards the achievement of the MDGs. It looks back on four years of analysis of EU development policy and measures progress and regression. It looks forward to the next generation of EU Country Strategy Papers (CSPs) and asks whether they provide an adequate framework within which the EU can deliver on its MDG promises. It casts a critical eye on ambitions to deliver 50% of aid through General Budget Support (GBS) and queries how GBS could support the EU's efforts towards achievement of the MDGs. 

2015-Watch-Report 3 / 2006: Special Focus - Education

In October 2006, the third report looked at education: The EU's contribution to the Millennium Development Goals, Special Focus: Education. This report once again addressed the European Commission and found that the EU is failing to deliver on its education promises to the poorest of the poor.
A special feature of the third report were two inputs from the South, from India and Mozambique, strengthening the validity of the results.

2015-Watch-Report 2 / 2005: A Comparative Performance of Six EU Member States

In May 2005, Alliance2015 launched its second 2015-Watch Report The MDGs: a comparative performance of six EU Member States and the EC aid programme, which focused on the six Alliance member countries and their activities regarding the MDGs. With a slightly revised methodology, the report also ranked the countries with regards to their MDG performance. This report marked the Alliance2015 contribution to 2005's welcome and necessary UN-review on the global progress regarding the MDGs. 

2015-Watch-Report 1 / 2004: Special Focus: HIV&AIDS

In 2004, Alliance2015 produced and published its first 2015-Watch Report: The EU's contribution to the MDGs, Special Focus: HIV&AIDS as an instrument for measuring donor performance. The first report focused on the EU as the largest single contributor of Official Development Assistance (ODA). The report enjoyed a broad response from the interested public and the EU institutions.
