This is an event hosted by the European Parliament's Committee on Development (DEVE), and features Mikaela Gavas, Co-Director of Development Cooperation in Europe and Senior Policy Fellow, Center for Global Development
The workshop’s aim is to inform DEVE Members on the ways and modalities of financing of development under the European Financial Architecture for Development (EFAD).
The experts will examine the state of play and the decision made by the Council to pursue the 'status quo +' option, as well as other future options and scenarios, such as the establishment of an European Climate and Sustainable Development Bank, and provide recommendations on the best way forward, including on the roles of the European Investment Bank (EIB), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and EU Member States' development finance institutions, also in the context of the Team Europe approach, and implementation of the NDICI-Global Europe regulation.
