UK launch of the European Report on Development 2013

Date: 10 June 2013 13:00 – 14:30 (GMT+01 (BST))

Venue: Overseas Development Institute and streamed live online

The authors of the European Report on Development 2013 (ERD 2013) will present some of the findings of the report, which provides a contribution to the post-2015 debate, and will put them in perspective with the recent publication of the High-Level Panel Report.

The world we live in has undergone major changes since 2000, while there are mounting challenges that need to be tackled in the next 20-30 years. Based on these observations, the ERD 2013 identifies key international drivers of development that can tackle poverty in an inclusive and sustainable manner. Three such drivers are highlighted: flows of money (development finance), flows of goods (trade) and flows of people (migration). Mobilising global collective action around these three issues would equip the post-2015 framework with the necessary tools to address some of the most pressing challenges facing developing countries. This is an area that has received relatively less attention in the post-2015 debate.

The analysis of the report is enriched by four country case studies prepared by local research institutes, and a dozen background papers by practitioners and academics. Building on this material and the illustrations it offers, the report presents a series of policy recommendations for international collective action in a post-2015 development agenda, and also more specifically for the European Union.
