Current activities


The report Polish Development Cooperation 2016 is another edition of Grupa Zagranica annual publication which focuses on the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the actions undertaken by the Polish administration responsible for the implementation of the development cooperation policy. This summary provides an analysis of the statistics of Polish Official Development Assistance for 2015 and the expenditure on humanitarian aid in 2016.


The Polish platform of NGOs in development cooperation expresses their resolute protest against the form in which the consultations for the new 'Programme of Cooperation with NGOs ...' by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs took place.


Action remains well short of ambition in the European Union, a new report by CONCORD, the European NGO confederation for relief and development shows. Despite repeated promises, the EU as a whole did not deliver on its commitment to spend 0.7% of Gross National Income (GNI) as aid by 2015. More worryingly, there is an emerging trend in EU countries to divert aid budgets from sustainable development to domestic costs associated with hosting refugees and asylum seekers.


The TRIALOG Policy Digests provided insight to currently discussed development policy topics. They provided information about recent policy processes and suggestions how to get engaged in the discussions and actions around the topics. The Policy Digests were written by drafting teams made up of TRIALOG partners (national platfrms from "new members states" of European Union).


The research presented in this report aims at strengthening public and political support for ensuring Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) and formulating recommendations for policy coherence.

The report includes 4 case studies from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland to illustrate the (in)coherence between development cooperation and non-development policy areas:
