2015 is a key year for global cooperation. The Third International Conference on Financing for Development will be held in July, then the international community plans to agree on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September and finally, a global climate agreement is set to be approved in Paris at the end of the year.

Higher tax revenues in developing countries in combination with improved international co-operation on tax matters constitutes a key aspect of the post-2015 agenda. However, positive developments in recent years should not mask the fact that this part of the agenda still needs to be spurred on further.

There is much to commend in the recent Charter for the Future (Zukunftscharta) presented to the German public and to German Chancellor Angela Merkel by the German Development Minister.
