Submission to the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs, Trade and Defence review of Irish Aid

Trócaire's submission to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs, Trade and Defence argues that the Irish Aid programme is a high-quality and poverty focused programme, and that these core principles should be maintained and strengthened. The submission points to the need for greater policy coherence for development in a context of complex humanitarian crises that are driven by political conflict and/or exacerbated by climate change.
