Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 20 October 2014

Today is International Volunteer Day, and this year’s theme “Young Global Active” celebrates young people around the world who are effecting change through volunteering.

Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 16 December 2013
Transition, which can be described as the radical reform of a country’s society and economy, is still a very new concept in development policy. In this interview Jean Bossuyt, the Head of Strategy at the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM), shares his thoughts on why transition is important and how the European Union can play an enabling role.
The EU together with its Member States is the world’s largest development donor, providing more than half of the total Official Development Assistance (€68 billion) in 2015. The EU alone spends on average €10 billion per year on development cooperation. Until recently, reporting on results achieved through EU ODA focused on individual programmes, projects, specific sectors and themes, and there has been little systematic reporting on aggregate results. That changed this summer, when the European Commission's Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) released the EU Results Report, which presents aggregate results of development programmes and projects in partner countries for the first time.
