Check out a new study about Effective Development Cooperation: Does the EU deliver? DG DEVCO looks forward to discussing its findings with partners and stakeholders. For greater effectiveness, we need to do more in a number of areas. These include cooperation as part of Team Europe - as exemplified by the EU’s global response to Covid-19, joint programming and joint implementation - and working with civil society.

More information on how to take part in this discussion will be published in due course. Watch this space! In the meantime, we would welcome your initial reactions to the study or ideas on how to move forward. Email them to us at
