The European Parliament elections in June 2024 are taking place at a key moment for the European Union (EU) and for the world. The climate change crisis and ecological emergency, increasing inequalities, worsening conflicts, the erosion of multilateralism, food insecurity and the rise of political and social movements that run counter to the values that inspired the founding of the EU are just some of the many challenges we face as a global society.
The setbacks in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), according to the conclusions of the 2023 edition of the World Sustainable Development Report, and the regression in the human development index are just two examples that empirically demonstrate that we are far from achieving the 2030 Agenda with little more than five years to go.

These elections are a unique opportunity to address this transition. La Coordinadora de Organizaciones para el Desarrollo presents its proposals for the new European institutional cycle. We want the EU to work from the perspective of policy coherence for sustainable development, endowed with the necessary resources, integrating all the impacts – internal and external – of all its political decisions, incorporating an intersectional feminist approach, the strategic participation of civil society organisations and promoting a feminist cooperation policy oriented towards sustainable development.

Only from this perspective can we advance in the necessary transition towards a new democratic and social model on a global scale that is socio-economically fairer, ecologically sustainable and which guarantees that the now inevitable digital transformation will be inclusive and respectful of human rights.
