Development policy is a complex and dynamic field that is impacted by emerging global trends and challenges as well as local and regional issues. International, regional and country-specific development policies need to be reviewed and continuously adapted to this context of constant change.

In order to better understand current development issues, anticipate future challenges and tackle them effectively, it is vitally important to support and promote a fruitful and constant dialogue between policy-makers and the research community.

The initiative Mobilising European Research for Development Policies supports and promotes such dialogue with the academia, research organisations, NGOs and other thought-leaders through two main channels: the European Report on Development and Policy and Research Workshops for Development.

The European Report on Development (ERD) is currently supported by the European Commission and four Member States (Finland, France, Germany and Luxembourg). This influential and independent report was first published in 2009 with the aim of stimulating debate and research on topics of major relevance for development and to enhance the European perspective in international development.

The fifth edition of the ERD has the theme: “Combining finance and appropriate policies to enable a transformative post-2015 development agenda”.

Please find the programme here. There will also be a parallel media workshop.

To register for this event, please visit the ERD website.
