  • There will also be a number of public consultations happening around the country (Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Sligo) in September and early October – dates to be confirmed.

The four main questions for the consultation are:

  • What elements of Ireland’s international development experience should the new policy reflect?
  • What are the implications of the changing global context for Ireland’s international development cooperation and humanitarian action?
  • Do the proposed priorities respond to the changing context and contribute to the achievement of our vision of a more equal, peaceful, sustainable world?
  • How can we improve delivery of Ireland’s international development cooperation and humanitarian action?
