The recent UN proposal for 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) covers a multitude of topics, which indicates that the list of issues relevant to international development has grown rapidly in recent years. This trend has a bearing on how the EU should articulate and implement its development policy. The SDGs are an opportunity to improve matters. As they will spell out targets for all nations, rather than only developing ones, this agenda will require not only coherent management of the EU’s external affairs. The EU will also have to consider how to achieve the SDGs within Europe.
