Based on an assessment of the Millennium Development Goals experience and on an analysis of the changing international context, and likely trends for the next 20-30 years, the ERD 2013 (http://www.erd-report.eu) looks at key potential drivers of a post- 2015 global partnership, to tackle poverty in the poorest countries and promote structural transformation in an inclusive and sustainable manner.
The Report highlights three such drivers: flows of money (development finance), flows of goods (trade) and flows of people (migration). To enrich its analysis, the ERD 2013 draws on case studies carried out by local research institutes in four countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Nepal, Rwanda and Peru).
The Report presents a series of policy recommendations for the international community and global action, in view of supporting the achievement of an ambitious post-2015 agenda. It also presents more specific recommendations for the European Union.
The ERD is an independent report, prepared by a team of researchers from three research institutes: ODI, DIE and ECDPM.
The initiative is supported by the European Commission and seven EU Member States, namely Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
