Supporting Inclusive and Sustainable Growth for Human Development

Brussels, 16-17 October 2012.

EDD 2012’s topics reflected the shattering reality of the situation: in 2012, around 16% of the world’s population were hungry and lived in poverty. The forum was articulated around the topics: building resilience, engaging the private sector and empowering people.

EDD 2012 participants shared success stories and best practices, discussed the potential of the private sector in transforming African economies, debated what constitutes inclusive business models, and looked at how best to boost innovation and move towards green and inclusive growth.

I share the ream of a day when poverty is a thing of the past. Not just in terms of income, but also in terms of access to healthcare and social and political rights.
Joyce Banda, President of Malawi
