EU: New report on Post-2015 Development priorities

A new European Report on Development (ERD) on how global action can best support the efforts of the poorest countries in achieving development was published on 9th of April in Brussels.
The ERD 2013, entitled 'Post 2015: Global Action for an Inclusive and Sustainable Future', comes just over a month after the publication of EU's proposal for the development framework once the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) come to an end in 2015 (explained in the policy document 'A Decent Life for All: Ending Poverty and Giving the World a Sustainable Future').
Supported by the European Commission and seven Member States (Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom), the European Report on Development (ERD) is the main output of the "Mobilising European Research for Development Policies" initiative. This flagship report is published since 2009, with the aim of stimulating debate and research on topics of major relevance for development, as well as to enhance the European perspective in the international development arena.
The ERD 2013 was prepared by an independent team of researchers from three research institutes: Overseas Development Institute (ODI), German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM). The analysis is also enriched by four case studies prepared by local research institutes in Côte d’Ivoire (CIRES), Nepal (SAWTEE and Social Science Baha), Peru (IEP and Rimisp) and Rwanda (IPAR).

The document recommends that the post-2015 agenda should build on the MDGs, but strive to deliver on the wider vision of the Millennium Declaration (this would require going both “Beyond MDGs” and “Beyond Aid”).
It outlines “main messages” that the EU should present in the post-2015 discussions:
•         A strong international collective action
•    Emphasising structural economic and social transformations - creating employment, addressing inequality and finding sustainable solutions
•    National ownership is crucial (the new framework should pay more attention to how global goals relate to national needs and targets
•    Instruments to be used and their targets should be clearly highlighted
