Dear Madam / Sir,

CONCORD, the European NGO Confederation for Development and Relief bringing together 28 national associations, 21 international networks and 3 associate members representing 2,600 NGOs across Europe, kindly invites you to the launch event of its new report ‘The impact of EU policies in the world – seeing the bigger picture’, which will take place on the 19th of October 2017 from 17.30 until 18.30 CET in Mundo J, rue de l’industrie 10, Brussels.

The report sheds light on the EU’s impact assessments, seeing in them one of the mechanisms that could make EU policies more coherent with sustainable development. Concretely, we examined the impact assessments that accompanied proposals issued by DGs of the European Commission in 2016, singling out four cases in which there was an adequate, an inadequate or no impact assessment, exploring them in greater depth in an attempt to learn the strengths and weaknesses of the Commission’s current approach to impact assessments and propose recommendations for the future.

During the launch event, key actors involved in the impact assessment process will have the opportunity to respond to the different findings and recommendations presented, after which participants will be invited to join the debate.

In case you would be interested to attend, please make sure to register via this link.
We hope to see you at the launch.

Kind regards,
