EU Development Cooperation

Agenda 2030 encompassing the Sustainable Development Goals, which the international community agreed upon in 2015, is also perceived as a new challenge for the EU development cooperation. The European Union and its member states are called upon to find new answers on how to handle fundamental issues like poverty eradication, migration, human rights or mitigation and adaption to climate change. With the help of analyzes, studies and action-oriented research SÜDWIND is dealing with these and other questions of the EU’s development policy.


The need for more coordination in European development cooperation is acknowledged by most academics and practitioners. It emerges because there has been a strong increase in the level of fragmentation and proliferation of official development assistance (ODA) in recent years, despite the calls for stronger harmonisation and division of labour.
