This opinion analyses how the principle of policy coherence for development is incorporated into the preliminary draft law in its version of 25 October 2018 (second reading in the Council of Ministers), in particular in relation to the new concept of a comprehensive approach. It also analyses the way in which the issue of migration and support to the private sector is presented in the preliminary draft law, highlighting the risks of contradiction with the desire of Belgian development policy to focus on the least developed countries. Finally, it makes recommendations to better integrate and ensure policy coherence for development (PCD) in the draft law, particularly in the areas of migration and support to the private sector.
