ERD 2013: European Report on Development

March 2012

The European Report on Development (ERD) 2013 aims to provide an independent European contribution to the emerging debate on a possible post-2015 consensus on international development. In doing so, it will seek to answer questions such as:

  • What are possible elements of a global agenda that would help to focus efforts on poverty eradication over the next decades?
  • What would the poorest countries need and want, if anything, from a new global consensus on development?
  • What can Europe contribute?

As part of the background research work for this report, the ERD team is conducting four country case studies in order to ensure that the Report reflects different developing country experiences and perspectives with regard to the Millennium Development Goals and a possible future global framework. The four case studies are being conducted by local research institutes from each country:

  • Ivory Coast: Centre Ivoirien de Recherches Economiques et Sociales (CIRES)
  • Nepal: South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics & Environment (SAWTEE) and Centre for the Study of Labour and Mobility (CESLAM)
  • Peru: Rimisp and Insituto de Estudios Peruanos (IEP)
  • Rwanda: Institute of Policy Analysis and Research (IPAR)
Part of the methodology requires the local research teams to produce a first draft of their report that can then be discussed with stakeholders and the ERD 2013 team in an in-country workshop. Thereafter based on the results of and conclusions reached at the workshop the local research teams can complete their case study reports and produce a final version.
