European Development Days Live: World leaders discuss ideas to reduce inequalities on Day 2

Organised by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) aim to bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world's most pressing challenges.

EDD's title this year is "Addressing inequalities: building a world which leaves no one behind". For its thirteenth edition, EDD 2019 aims to bring together the European Union's commitment to addressing inequalities with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

"Addressing inequalities: building a world which leaves no one behind" is at the core of European values and enshrined within the EU's legal and political framework.
