The European Development Days (EDD), organised by the European Commission, bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
The European Investment Bank is participating in the EDD 2021 as we increased our development cooperation with the EU, bringing a joined-up and responsive EU engagement in countries where the needs are greatest.
The EDD 2021 will focus on “The Green Deal for a Sustainable Future”.
Biodiversity loss, climate change and environmental degradation are defining challenges of our generation and require more coordinated and incisive international efforts. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the interlinkages between human health and an healthy planet. The post COVID recovery should be an opportunity to build back greener and more inclusive societies and economies.
