  7. Team Europe - Working better together for effective development cooperation

    In 2011, the Busan Principles defined what makes good-quality, effective development cooperation worldwide. However, in the ten years since Busan ODA (Official Development Assistance), programmes have become more fragmented and less effective. The Team Europe approach – adopted by the EU and its Member States in 2020 – is a commitment to delivering more and better impact through building joint coordinated, more effective European development cooperation. Capacity4dev spoke with country-level practitioners to learn from their experience on the Team Europe approach.

  8. Team Europe - Mieux travailler ensemble pour une coopération pour le développement efficace

    En 2011, les Principes de Busan ont défini ce qui fait une coopération au développement efficace et de qualité dans le monde. Cependant, au cours des dix années qui ont suivi l'APD de Busan (Aide publique au développement), les programmes sont devenus plus fragmentés et moins efficaces. L'approche Team Europe - adoptée par l'UE et ses États membres en 2020 - est un engagement à produire un impact plus important et de meilleure qualité en mettant en place une coopération européenne au développement conjointe, coordonnée et plus efficace. Capacity4dev s'est entretenu avec des professionnels au niveau national pour tirer parti de leur expérience de l'approche de Team Europe.

  12. Intercultural awareness and capacity for development effectiveness

    International partnerships, being multicultural in nature, often face cultural differences which can generate misunderstandings, tension, and inefficiency. There are both tangible and intangible cultural barriers in EU interventions limiting the capacity to work with internal and external teams. As a result, the quality of policy dialogue and interventions management is hindered, and thus results and relationships are affected. To deal with this situation, solutions are needed.
