Development and Cooperation Directorate General - EuropeAid formally began work on 3rd January and is responsible for designing European development policy and delivering aid throughout the world. The European Commission can now speak with one voice on development and cooperation issues. Development and Cooperation - EuropeAid brings together two former Directorates General (DG): DG Development and DG EuropeAid. Having one address for development policy and implementation will provide a single contact point for stakeholders both inside and outside the EU. Development and Cooperation - EuropeAid is also the single interlocutor for the European External Action Service (EEAS), and for all sectoral DGs. Development and Cooperation - EuropeAid reinforces the ability of the EU to design state-of-the-art development policy for all developing countries, and enhances policy coherence for development while further improving implementation and delivery mechanisms. It also defines the future development policy drawing from the objectives of the EU's Green Paper on development policy and contributes to global challenges ahead. Development and Cooperation - EuropeAid plays a leading role in the international debate for development involving donors, international institutions, developing and emerging countries and non State actors. The new DG is headed by Fokion Fotiadis. After a short transitory period, the two DGs have been fully merged and a new structure has been put in place.   MISSION STATEMENT Development and Cooperation - EuropeAid is responsible for putting into motion the European Commission's worldwide concern for development, by bringing together policy design and policy implementation covering all development countries.
