EDC 2020

On 2 June 2008 in Brussels, the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) launched its new project ‘European Development Cooperation to 2020’. This project – a follow-up to EDC 2010 – aims at improving the understanding of EU policy makers about the emerging challenges facing EU development policy and external action. The EDC 2020 project will work in close cooperation with reputable research institutes (such as IDS, ODI, DIE and FRIDE), while the Society for International development (SID) will help with communication towards policy makers and practitioners.

EDC 2020 is funded by the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and will be organised around three key emerging issues:

  • the role of new actors (India, China, Brazil) in international development;
  • Europe’s approach to energy security, democracy and political development;
  • the links between European development policy and climate change.
