policy coherence for development
This briefing paper considers the need for Policy Coherence for Development in Ireland’s relationship with the developing world. 
 
Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) is a process which seeks to ensure that investments in overseas aid are supported, or at the very least, not undermined by non-aid policies implemented by national governments, such as Ireland, and blocks like the EU. It considers areas such as environment, energy, trade, taxation and investment.
