The European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM)

Established in 1986, ECDPM is an independent foundation, based in Maastricht and Brussels, which promotes effective partnerships between the European Union and the developing world, in particular Africa and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. ECDPM produces reports and discussion papers; and facilitates policy dialogues reinforcing the capacity of ACP countries and helping governments in Europe to make their development policies and instruments more effective. Irish Aid has worked in partnership with ECDPM since 2006 and has had a particularly close relationship with ECDPM’s Economic and Trade Cooperation programme e.g. supporting research on EU-ACP Economic Partnership Agreements.
