The EDD 2017 will promote a new global strategy to address the most pressing current global development challenges and bring together development actors committed to tackling poverty worldwide with a particular emphasis on engaging the private sector as a partner in economic development. The private sector's role in international development policies will be discussed and spotlighted throughout the forum. Overarching objectives of the private sector engagement include the promotion of inclusive growth and the creation of decent jobs in particular for women and youth, which leads to improved living conditions. Together, we can shape global policy, share knowledge and promote real innovation.

Gathering 6000 people, the EDD engenders a considerable ecological footprint. This year, once again, the EDD will largely compensate this through the financing of specific projects, which will amount to a contribution in the reduction of emissions of around 7000 metric tons. This will be achieved through each session and stand organiser contributing to one project amongst four selected ones.
