28. In order to address issues of inequality and marginalisation, and to promote social cohesion, the EU will strengthen its support to access to basic services (water and sanitation, health, education, sustainable energy …) and its support to combat environmental degradation. The progress in poverty reduction, governance, equity and sustainable development will be duly taken into account in the allocation criteria based on needs and performance. At the same time the EU will improve its assistance to post-conflict countries and fragile States.”
