For European Union delegations and member states, working effectively with civil society organisations presents different challenges. In Chad it takes five days of desert travel to reach organisations in the north; in Azerbaijan there are about 3000 registered NGOs; in Trinidad & Tobago some CSOs find that their insights are not being recognised and validated sufficiently; and until recently in Bangladesh knowledge was mostly available only on groups involved in service-delivery.

The Improving Forest Governance course is a 4-week, UK-based residential
course that covers a variety of forest governance issues. The course is
conducted in English, French and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation
and is taught by experienced tutors from the Centre for International
Development and Training, as well as leading international experts and
practitioners on forest governance, climate change, REDD+ and
multi-stakeholder processes from the UK and abroad. Participants are immersed
in training and benefit from high quality field trips, including visiting a
Chatham House Illegal Logging update meeting in London.

The European Union and its Member States have kept their place as the world’s leading aid donor, contributing €68 billion in 2015. They have recently begun to present a united front, pulling together their combined resources and analysis into a coordinated response to partner countries’ development plans. We look at how this joined-up European approach is working in Cambodia, Laos and the Republic of Moldova.
In 2006 the Government of Bangladesh initiated a major overhaul of Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Bangladesh, with support from the European Union. The project, implemented by the International Labour Office (ILO), has achieved a couple of ‘first’s’ in the country’s history: it has produced a National Skill Development Policy, a National Qualifications Framework, and it promotes social inclusion.
Communist Laos began opening up to the world in the 1990s, joining ASEAN and trading with the EU under the ‘Everything but Arms’ scheme. Yet the largely rural population remains poor and development challenges abound. Michel Goffin, Head of Mission in the EU Delegation to Laos, outlines issues from governance to geography, shares successful projects which could be replicated, and discusses working towards an exit strategy by building the government’s capacity.

During the European Development Days 2013, there was a strong focus on youth, as the event welcomed for the first time 12 youth ambassadors from around the world, three of whom were 18 or under. Each ambassador was selected to attend a high-level auditorium session where they were encouraged to join the debate by asking questions and sharing their thoughts. To launch Youth Week, two ambassadors, Esther Eshiet and Restanti Waruwu, share their views with capacity4dev.eu on health and nutrition, and how these should be addressed in the post-2015 agenda.

The overall aim of the CSDP High Level Course (HLC) is to prepare selected
senior individuals from EU Member States and EU Institutions for leadership
positions in the application and development of the CSDP policy, crisis
management and capability development, which are able to cooperate
effectively with the various actors in this field. The course aims to broaden
course participants’ knowledge and understanding of the EU security and
defence architecture, the comprehensive nature of the CSDP as a key tool of
CFSP, current and anticipated policy, missions and operations, as well as to
increase their awareness of human rights and gender, freedom security and
justice and horizontal issues.

The training delivered both via the eLearning platform and during the
residential Modules promotes a common European security culture and aims to
foster the network of future leaders involved in the strategic aspects of the
CFSP/CSDP.
