G7 Development Ministers Do Not Include Spending, Outcome Targets For Sahel Region’s Health, Education In Summit Communiqué

Devex: G7 development ministers resist setting targets for Sahel
“A meeting of G7 development ministers and their counterparts from north-central Africa has stopped short of setting targets for health and education spending and outcomes in the Sahel, prompting NGOs to decry a lack of commitment weeks out from the G7 leaders’ summit in Biarritz, France. … The French government, which is hosting this year’s G7 summit from August 24-26, had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication. However, a French official, who requested anonymity, said it is for the [World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA)] board of governors, not G7 members, to set spending targets…” (Chadwick, 7/5).
