in development policy means to focus on the integral human development which
comprises social and economic components. The financial and economic crises of
the past years as well as the hunger and climate crisis threaten this
development because they violate fundamental rights of the poor. The causes of
the crises, but the effects as well are related to one another, and this ought
to be taken in account in order to find solutions. The adaptation to climate
change for example and a recovery from the economic slump will not ensure
sustainable food and energy supplies or the maintenance of social peace if no
attention is paid to a healthy rural development, a careful use of natural
resources, and to the social security of those affected. As regards coherence,
the Justice and Peace Commission is asked to explain the interrelationships and
dependencies in the human family in politics and the public sphere. Therefore
it is necessary to build bridges between societies in different geographic, climatic
and cultural contexts of the world which are brought closer together through
markets, transboundary natural resources, global goods etc. These links are
appropriately and adequately exposed in position statements, events and
Conference Church and Development (GKKE) ensures the institutional “monitoring“
of a coherent policy for development in Germany. The GKKE’s coherence expert
group publishes reports in which it critically assesses the development policy
of the Federal Government and Parliament and their efforts to implement the
millennium development goals.
