The European Development Days are Europe’s premier forum on international affairs and development cooperation, every year attracting political leaders and world-renowned authorities on development.
This year ONE has partnered up with Oxfam International, Caritas Europa, and Polish Humanitarian Action, to organise a high-level event on “How to prevent another famine in the Horn of Africa: the role of the EU in building resilience”.
