Toward a Brighter Future: A Transatlantic Call for Renewed Leadership and Partnerships in Global Development
The Transatlantic Taskforce on Development, a group comprising 24 North American and European leaders in development, released a report urging renewed leadership and partnerships in global development to political leaders on both sides of the Atlantic.
Created in March 2008 by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), the Transatlantic Taskforce on Development convened a diverse group of government, NGO, and private-sector professionals to examine four priority challenges in development: development, democracy, and security; climate change; food security; and effective support for development. Led by Taskforce Co-chairs Gunilla Carlsson and Jim Kolbe, the Taskforce developed a set of recommendations for policy leaders and development professionals across a wide spectrum of areas.
