Projektbeschreibung

Supported by the European Commission and four Member States (Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg), the European Report on Development (ERD) is the main output of the "Mobilising European Research for Development Policies" initiative. This flagship report is published since 2009, with the aim of stimulating debate and research on topics of major relevance for development, as well as to enhance the European perspective in the international development arena.

The first four editions of the ERD focused respectively on "Overcoming fragility in Africa: forging a new European approach" (ERD 2009), "Social protection for inclusive development: a new perspective in EU co-operation with Africa" (ERD 2010), "Confronting scarcity: Managing water, energy and land for inclusive and sustainable growth" (ERD 2011/2012), and "Post-2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future" (ERD 2013).

The 5th European Report on Development will have the topic of ‘Financing and other means of implementation in the post-2015 context’ and will be prepared by the consortium made up of ODI (Overseas Development Institute), DIE (Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik), ECDPM (European Centre for Development Policy Management), the University of Athens (Department of Economics, Division of International Economics and Development) and the Southern Voice Network.

The  ERD 2014 will consist of three parts:

- Part A – Overview: This first section will set out the post-2015 context both in terms of finance and of a range of other means of implementation and discuss how to follow-on from ERD 2013.

- Part B – Substance: This major part of the report will explain the type of analyses and innovations available for examining various financing options and other means of implementation in detail, by locking together thematic studies and country cases to analyse the appropriate financing environment for a selected number of development challenges. When they interact with the financing options, we will also consider the role of a selected range of frameworks in a range of specific policy areas (eg. trade policy, international financial and macroeconomic policy, climate change, etc.) and see how these may require adjustment so they interact well with financing options to achieve the objectives of the post-2015 framework.

- Part C – Implications: The final section will consider the follow-up steps – both nationally and internationally – required to build on this analysis at the global level and for specific groups of stakeholders and countries including the EU.

Recognising that there is a lack of economic, social and environmental analyses underpinning the decisions needed to inform the range of financing options in the post-2015 context, this ERD will seek to provide insights (for a selected set of financing challenges) into what financing options are available and work best under what complementary conditions (other means of implementation and other policies), and who (countries, groups in-country) gains from the range of options. In this context it will explore how a range of financing options interact and complement with other means required for the implementation of the post-2015 agenda, particularly in the areas of knowledge and innovation and in terms of the dialogue processes needed to ensure implementation takes places and in an accountable manner so as to ensure the continued support of the many stakeholders involved.
