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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
