About the report:
The European Report on Development (ERD) is the main output of the “Mobilising European Research for Development Policies” initiative, supported by the European Commission and seven EU Member States (Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden & United Kingdom). It is an independent research report, prepared by some of the leading EU development academics and research institutes.
The first edition dealt with the topic of fragility in Africa (2009), and the second of social protection (2010). The third edition, entitled “Confronting scarcity: managing water, energy and land for inclusive and sustainable growth”, will be launched in May 2012.
The 2012-2013 report is being prepared by a team led by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) in partnership with the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM).
