The European Union is the largest aid donor in the world and gives over half of global aid. As the single largest source, the EU takes a central position and plays an important role in facilitating progress on global development. Its policies have a major bearing on global development—from climate, to migration, to trade, agriculture, and security. CGD is bringing its innovative thinking and evidence-based, practical propositions to the unique European context.
CGD’s work on European Development Policy is led by the Europe Program.
