While the Finance Bill, the last of the mandate of François Hollande discussed currently in Parliament, Coordination SUD, the national platform of French international solidarity NGOs which brings together 170 organizations launch a communication campaign and a citizen petition to raise awareness of the importance of official development assistance, induce France to respect its commitments and to alert candidates to the presidential election in 2017.

Philippe Jahshan, President of Coordination SUD,

“International solidarity, helping to reduce poverty and inequality is a major contribution to peace. It must become a priority in view of the major challenges the world faces. Therefore, France must be up and substantially increase its official development assistance.”
