a20 NOV 2019


To introduce CONCORD's priorities and areas of expertise to the new Members of the European Parliament, our Confederation is organising a one-day conference on 20th November in Brussels, co-hosted by the MEP and Vice-chair of the DEVE Committee, Erik Marquardt.

CONCORD is prioritising inequalities as the red thread linking all our work. We will therefore look into the concept of Leaving No One Behind from three different perspectives and ask ourselves: how is our sector actually implementing this principle? The event will include keynote speeches and high-level panels, presenting the main outcomes of the AidWatch 2019 Report and the Inequalities Report as well as a thematic session on Africa. The official programme, final speakers and times will be confirmed in the upcoming days.

Speakers Include:
Neven Mimica - European Commissioner for Development
Aya Chebbi - African Union Youth Envoy
Fr. John Patrick Ngoyi - Executive Director at Justice, Development & Peace Commission, Nigeria
Birgitte Markussen - Deputy Managing Director for Africa at EEAS
Johannes Trimmel - CONCORD President 
Vince Chadwick - Journalist at Devex
