Agriculture has a major role to play for achieving the SDGs but its resilience and sustainability are increasingly at stake. Addressing the challenges it faces requires knowledge for evidence-based decisions and solutions.

Research and training platforms in partnership are a unique cooperation model. They foster dialogue and collaborative thinking around global issues while supporting the emergence of specific and local innovation for increased impact.

The European Development Days have been organized by the European Commission since 2006, and bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experience, with a view to fostering new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world's most pressing challenges.
