Development Cooperation News (DCN) is published electronically twice a year with an aim to enrich awareness of society and policymakers in Latvia about global interconnection, challenges and initiatives to solve them both globally and locally. Thus, DCN features current development cooperation topics from the perspective of practitioners, opinion leaders and policy-makers.
The 1st issue is dedicated to financing for development. It gives a chance to remind us and our readers about Riga Roundtable international conference Financing for Development: Role of EU Member States that was organized on June 11-12-2015 by the Green Liberty, Latvian Green Movement and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Latvia and about the 3rd International Conference on Financing for Development that was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on July 13 to 16, 2015. This global and local news is published in the section EVENTS that jointly with other sections: POSITIONS, EXPERIENCE, OPINIONS, and RESOURCES shapes the structure of Development Cooperation News.
This 1st issue is looking for answers on the following questions: How to finance equality among people and sustainable planet? What is an opinion of Latvian policy makers about financing for global development? To what extent micro credits can reduce poverty? What are we ready to sacrifice to get bigger investments?
