11.04.2013 | Bonner Impulse "The European Report on Development 2013 Post – 2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future"

The European Report on Development (ERD) is an independent report, supported by the European Commission and seven EU Member States (Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom) in the framework of the “Mobilising European Research for Development Policies” initiative. The fourth edition was prepared by a research consortium of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM).

Based on the observation that the world we live in has gone through major changes since 2000 and looking at the likely trends and challenges for the next 20-30 years, the ERD 2013 attempts to identify key potential drivers of a global partnership for development post 2015, in order to tackle poverty in the poorest countries 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). 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 agenda, and also more specifically for the European Union.

How could finance, trade and migration policies be more supportive of inclusive and sustainable development and poverty reduction, thereby complementing further improvements in develop­ment cooperation policies? At which level (global, regional, national) might efforts to strengthen policy coherence have the most impact? And in what areas are they most likely to be accepted and implemented? How could more advanced countries contribute most usefully to global development post-2015? Which interests do emerging economies have in a global agenda? What could be the principles of a new development agenda? These and other questions will be addressed by this Bonner Impulse event, organised by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), EADI & VENRO.
