EU: We report back – Polish development official argues for the inclusion of beneficiaries in development programmes
This is a recording from the ‘Challenges of Development Cooperation in EU New Member States’ Conference, held in Budapest in September 2011.
In this recording:
Do you want to know why development cooperation can be compared to a sloth? Then don’t miss to listen to this very witty presentation of Jan Hofmokl, Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Poland. In the other clip, he draws our attention to look at things with longer term perspective instead of thinking only in the six-month presidency period.
About the conference:
On the occasion of two New EU Member States holding the EU Presidency in 2011, followed by Cyprus in 2012 and Lithuania in 2013, MRG's conference aim was to provide opportunities for New EU Member States decision makers, experts and NGOs to exchange experiences about the EU Presidencies on the field of development cooperation and reflect on the new approaches and challenges in development policy and programming.
The conference shared examples of the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) to development from old donor countries, new EU member states and the Global South.
