European Development Days 2017 to be held in Brussels
The European Development Days (EDD), organized by the European Commission (EC), gathers over 6,000 participants from 140 countries in Brussels to contribute to the future agenda for development. The overarching theme for this year's EDD is ‘Investing in Development’; the Forum will build on the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and the EC’s proposal for a new European Consensus for Development. Key issues to be addressed include inclusive and sustainable growth, job creation, how to engage the private sector as a responsible actor in development, and women's and youth empowerment.
Location: Belgium, Brussels
