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.
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 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).

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
