Development cooperation

European Centre for Development Policy Management


ECDPM is an independent 'think and do' tank established in 1986. It has offices in Maastrichtissa and Brussels. ECPDM is regarded for its neutral and high quality research. During 2022-2026 ECDPM will concentrate on EU-Africa relations and Europe's and Africa's roles globally. The objective is to assess as well African economies, the green transition and climate actions as well as the requisites of peaceful societies and engaging citizens. ECDPM produces studies, events and trainings. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has cooperated with ECDPM since 1998. Finland and ECDPM had a four-year agreement which ended in 2022. In 2022 Finland granted a core funding of 230.000 euros. In addition, an amount of 20.000 euros annually has been reserved for a service component. The cooperation supports widely the defining of Finnish positions related to EU development policy and EU advocacy. The cooperation supports indirectly the development policy priorities on poverty reduction, economically and socially sustainable development and good governance within EU institutions relevant for EU development policy as well as EU Delegations.
