Abstract: The European Report on Development (ERD) is intended to improve the visibility of the EU at the global level and help it shape the international development agenda. Little of the research done at European institutes reaches international policy discussions. The ‘mobilizing European research for development policies’ initiative is intended to bridge the gap between European researchers and policymakers. The initiators of the ERD want to see a more ambitious international development agenda. Not just to eliminate poverty, but to achieve equitable and sustainable prosperity for all. In this light, a storyline was chosen for the coming European Reports: ‘Reconciling the MDGs with new global challenges – the EU’s approach’. The challenges include security threats, migration, the rise of China and India, and environmental degradation.
