The overarching goal of the Policy Forum on Development (PFD) is to offer CSOs and LAs from the EU and partner countries, as well as European institutions, a multi-stakeholder space for dialogue on development issues at EU Headquarters level.
The PFD pursues 3 key objectives:
1. Dialogue on cross-cutting issues directly related to the role of CSOs, LAs and professional and business associations as relevant development actors in their own rights
2. Policy debate, consultation and exchange of information and experiences on key EU development policies and initiatives
3. Drafting key recommendations to be shared with representatives of EU institutions and other key development stakeholders
