Gathering 6000 people, the EDD engenders a considerable ecological footprint. This year, once again, the EDD will largely compensate this through the financing of specific projects, which will amount to a contribution in the reduction of emissions of around 7000 metric tons. This will be achieved through each session and stand organiser contributing to one project amongst four selected ones.

We debate

Thought-provoking debates on global challenges are an interactive manner to engage development actors and stakeholders. Two session formats are available: Auditorium (High-level Panels) and Lab debates.

We share

A project or report lab is a great format for organisations to share best practices and knowledge about international cooperation and development policies.

We solve

Brainstorming sessions invite practitioners from around the world to gather, discuss and solve the most pressing development challenges.

We showcase

The EDD Global Village features stands showcasing successful projects and reports from around the world. It is a great opportunity to network with participants and share stories from the field.
