Development: French G20 presidency brings together civil society groups

In 2011, in the context of the Arab Spring and the international economic crisis, the development of Southern countries takes a new dimension which transcends the duty of solidarity. Development policy today is an essential macroeconomic support to solve crises and to bring about a more prosperous and stable world. To bring about equitable and long-term growth, an upright cooperation between developed countries, emerging countries and developing countries is necessary.

For this reason, the French minister for Development Cooperation, Henri de Raincourt, has invited governments and civil society actors to a conference on 21 October, in anticipation of the G20 summit at the beginning of November in Cannes.

This high-level conference had the threefold objective of mobilising civil society for development, to foster an exchange about the proposals of the G20 development ministers meeting that took place in Washington D.C. on 23 September and to have an open debate about issues of development cooperation between governments, international organisations, NGOs, enterprises, university and high school students, labour organisations, politicians and Members of Parliament as well as experts, intellectuals, journalists and bloggers.
