Presentation of the 2013 European Report on Development in Germany

15.04.2013
The “2013 European Report on Development (ERD)” deals with Post-2015 development priorities. On 9 April 2013, Overseas Development Institute (ODI), European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) and German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) officially launched the report with European Development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs in Brussels. In Germany, DIE and partners will present and discuss the ERD 2013 at several occasions in May and June 2013.

The ERD 2013 is entitled “Post-2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future”. It addresses the debate on the post-2015 global development agenda and considers the main challenges for a sustainable future, including Europe’s contribution to this new international framework. The ERD 2013 identifies key potential drivers in order to tackle poverty in the poorest countries in an inclusive and sustainable manner.

It highlights three of them: 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 (Ivory Coast, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda) prepared by local research institutes. The studies also reflect the experiences of developing countries with international development goals. Based on these studies, the report generated recommendations for global collective action in the context of the post-2015 agenda and directly addresses the European Union.

Four key conclusions of the ERD 2013 are:

(1) The post-2015 agenda should go “beyond MDGs” and “beyond aid” by emphasizing a transformative agenda that takes into account economic and social transformations as well as creating employment, addressing inequality and finding sustainable solutions at the same time.

(2) National ownership and a stronger attention to the relationship between global goals and national needs and targets play key roles.

(3) Global collective action has to be scaled up; this also means that richer countries should enhance Policy Coherence for Development and increase both the level and the effectiveness of aid.

(4) A new post-2015 framework should also consider the instruments to be used to achieve the goals and not only the new goals themselves.

On three dates in April, May and June 2013, the report will be presented by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in Germany. On 11 April 2013 it had already been discussed within the context of the Bonner Impulse.

Two more events coming up in May and June 2013:

• 6 May 2013 in Frankfurt/ Main: joint event with KfW and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ); Attendance by invitation only.

• 10 June 2013 in Berlin: together with the representation of the European Commission in Germany.

About the European Report on Development
The European Report on Development 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 German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM).
The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in Brief

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is one of the leading Think Tanks for development policy world-wide. It is based in the UN City of Bonn. DIE builds bridges between theory and practice and works within international research networks. The key to DIE’s success is its institutional independence, which is guaranteed by the Institute’s founding statute. Since its founding in 1964, DIE has based its work on the interplay between Research, Consulting and Training. These three areas complement each other and are the factors responsible for the Institute’s distinctive profile. Every Monday, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) comments the latest news and trends of development policy in The Current Column.The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is headed by Prof. Dr. Dirk Messner (Director) and Dr. Imme Scholz (Deputy Director).

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
