Report on education and awareness-raising progresses of development
The report evaluates activities implemented with EC support between 1998 and 2007. It looks back at the results of the "Co-financing with European NGOs" programme and considers future perspectives within the "Non State Actors and Local Authorities in Development" thematic programme.The main objectives of the “Co-financing with European Development NGOs” programme regarding the
DE/AR component are to support actions aimed at raising awareness of development issues and promote education for development in the EU and acceding countries. This programme’s aims are specifically to mobilise support for action against poverty and to seek fairer relations between developed and developing countries through anchorage of development policy in European societies.
The evaluation seeks to verify to what extent the funded projects have reached these objectives of raising awareness of development issues, amongst citizens of Member States, that are beneficial to the populations of developing countries (in line with the objectives of the Millennium Development Goals). This evaluation has the specific purpose of helping to define the European Commission’s strategy on Development Education and Awareness Raising and making recommendations to improve the overall impact of Development Education (DE) projects. This is particularly important since the current programme “Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development” sits under a new legal framework where Development Cooperation and DE/AR are now further integrated. The stated aim of the new programme is to find a more integrated, decentralised, multi-actor, multi-sector approach to development
co-operation that reflects calls for the programme to be more inclusive. Integration between both DE/AR activities in Europe and Development Cooperation activities in developing countries will help to give greater synergy and coherence to EC policy in these areas and bring about greater inter-dependence in north-south relations as the world becomes increasingly globalised. The evaluation will also provide
lessons aimed at fostering the full and active participation of EU citizens in development issues through DE/AR activities.
1 Under the “Non-State Actors and Local Authorities in Development” programme, the 2007 Call for Proposals in February called for Concept Notes for projects that have now been selected and approved, and are being elaborated into full project proposals for final approval and selection at the time of writing this report.
