Abstract: The General Conference of the European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) took place in June 2008. The title of the EADI conference was ‘Global governance for sustainable development’. Sustainability, the environment and especially climate change, are closely interlinked with development and global governance. But this field has many barriers. Development specialists and their environmental colleagues move in different circles. But even if clever brains figure out how to achieve sustainable development in theory, realizing it in practice is a different story. Politics and power issues, or what some people call the ‘messy side’ of development cooperation, are important factors.
