Will partner countries benefit from the EYD2015?
The EYD2015, as previous European Years, is focussed on EU citizens. This is about promoting the EU development cooperation throughout Europe. We need to be realistic and focus according to our limited resources available.
There is much vital work to be done in Europe to inform on what we are doing in Brussels. Additionally, information needs in the EU are very different from a beneficiary in partner countries. Of course, whenever possible, we will share information on the EYD2015 through our Delegations in partner countries and through social media. However, we will require a lot of information from the field to feed into the preparation of the European Year for Development.
