EC: Closing Ceremony of the European Year for Development

The closing ceremony for the European Year for Development 2015 (EYD 2015) to take place today (9 December) in Luxembourg marks the culmination of a successful campaign.mThe closing ceremony for the European Year for Development 2015 (EYD 2015) to take place today (9 December) in Luxembourg marks the culmination of a successful campaign, which has seen partners such as youth groups, international organisations, members of the public, NGOs, the private sector, schools and universities from all over the EU, and worldwide, come together in a wide range of events, debates, and initiatives on international development. This is the first ever 'European Year' dedicated to external relations. 2015 has been a pivotal year for development cooperation: the year when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) came to an end and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were put in place. During the UN Summit in September, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted, which will set the course for international cooperation and development up to 2030. 2015 also saw the Financing for Development Conference take place in Addis Ababa, as well as the Climate Change Conference of Parties (or 'COP') in Paris. The ongoing migration and refugee crisis also clearly shows the vital role that international development can play in tackling the root causes of irregular migration – helping to improve stability and to create jobs and opportunities in the different regions of the world, particularly for young people.
