EPD and the World Bank event ‘Governance, Development and Democracy’ - Antonella Valmorbida among the speakers
Antonella Valborbida, Secretary General of ALDA, will act as speaker at the event organised by EPD and the World Bank event ‘Governance, Development and Democracy’ on 21 June.
The Secretary General of ALDA, Ms Antonella Valborbida, also President of EPD, will act as speaker at the presentation of ‘World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law’ (WDR), organised by the European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) and the World Bank.
The launch in Brussels of WDR 2017 aims to answer a fundamental question: What makes some policies work while others fail? Frequently, policies that fail to generate development outcomes endure across countries and over time. Putting governance front and centre of the development debate is essential for promoting sustained economic growth and encouraging more equitable and peaceful societies.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion on ways forward based on the findings of this report, and on possible implications for the European Union. The event will offer a space for civil society representatives, development practitioners, and EU officials to reflect upon the process by which state and non-state actors interact to design and implement development policies.
