Development, climate, security: challenges for a new cooperation policy

Monday 15th of January 2018, Paris (France)


An international conference organized by FERDI and IDDRI, meeting within the Initiative for Development and Global Governance (IDGM), as well as CERDI, associated with IDGM+. 

In an increasingly interdependent world, development and sustainable environmental management are two prerequisites for peace. This is the idea underpinning the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015. Addressing these challenges implies renewing cooperation policies by further integrating issues of development, social and environmental sustainability and security. In the short term, this agenda is marked by a number of key events. In France, the next Interministerial Committee for International Cooperation and Development will take place in February 2018, while in Europe, the future of cooperation and development policies will be discussed in the context of the debate on the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework.

An event bringing together policymakers and public authorities from the global North and South, as well as stakeholders and experts in international relations and sustainable development.

Scheduled of the conference-day: 

  • Opening session

    • Financing for development, security and climate: respective shares, synergies, competition or complementary?
