Share your story with us at the European Development Days! Our team of journalists are returning to the EDDs to talk to panellists, speakers, guests and exhibitors about the best practices to overcoming today’s key development challenges.

On behalf of Capacity4dev, I would like to invite you to suggest participants to interview at the event. Do you know a speaker who’s an expert in your sector? An attendee who’s a champion of women’s and girl’s rights? An implementing partner behind a project that could serve as best practice to others working on similar issues?

The idea behind these interviews is to compile a depository of different perspectives to be displayed as articles and videos on Capacity4dev. In our interviews, we always focus on what works, what doesn’t and why – highlighting the key challenges and best practices with the goal of improving the quality of aid, capacity development and policy.

The aim is to help development professionals from all over the world find solutions to everyday challenges through expert insights into latest policy developments, tips on how to most effectively use available tools, and experiences of fellow practitioners.

We are currently accepting proposals for interviews, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me with suggestions, and please share this message with others who might be interested. The call for proposals closes on 30th of May. Please note that the number of available interview slots is limited.

We hope to see you at the EDDs!

Bartosz,  Roxane sent me the information about Capcity4dev and your work on EDD. I have sent it through my network. 

I am passionate about development, empowerment, entrepreneurship and women - and I am equally frustrated by EU funded projects which are wasted , and policies that are making the situation worse for people in certain countries, not better.

I am a member of the European Economic and Social Committee, but most importantly I am a real entrepreneur having built my companies from zero, to a situation where we now use our own profits to drive change at the grass roots in various places across the world. - would love to be a speaker +/- do an interview with your team.


I love your idea to share


Best wishes

Dear Madi,

Thank you for your comment. Could you please send an interview proposal to my email, with details about the programmes or initiatives you would like to present to us, as well as what kind of best practices you'd be interested in sharing?

Kind regards,


Great idea... will love to grant interview regarding forest sustainability in Africa, Nigeria to be precise.

Kindly send the interview format to me on:



Dear Olajide,

Thank you for your interest. We don't have a standard interview format, as it always depends on the subject matter we're covering. Could you please send a proposal to my email, detailing the kind of initiatives you'd be interested in discussing.

Best regards,
