Policy Brief

The Policy Brief is a new format that replaces the former series “Briefing Papers” and its German version “Analysen und Stellungnahmen”. Policy Briefs address questions of development policy and international relations. By including concise recommendations, the series is primarily aimed at policy makers, practitioners and representatives of the (professional) media industry. Besides, the series also addresses everyone interested in developmental issues. Depending on the envisaged target group Policy Briefs are translated in other languages.

All publications of the series have a CC-BY 4.0 licence and can be downloaded in full text on our website.

    Pilot needs assessments indicate that analysed provisions of the IFD Agreement are not sufficiently implemented across the three LDCs: Lao PDR, Togo and Zambia. We identify key barriers as well as national and international support actions, which are crucial for successful IFD implementation.

    Cotton made in Africa is a sustainability standard for the textile mass market, implemented from 2005 on as an international public-private-partnership. From this experience, many lessons can be learned - for CmiA itself, for value chain promotion with smallholders, and for supply chain regulation.

    Even with Russia continuing to wage its war of aggression, Ukraine’s recovery starts now. If this reconstruction project is to succeed, specific contextual conditions need to be taken into account, along with experiences from other recovery processes, such as those in the Western Balkans and Iraq.

    Cox, Fletcher D. / Charlotte Fiedler / Karina Mross (2023)

    Bi- and multilateral donors increasingly focus on strengthening social cohesion to build peace in conflict-affected societies. What does promoting social cohesion in these contexts mean with respect to international engagement and what challenges arise?

    Auch wenn Russland seinen Angriffskrieg fortsetzt: der Wiederaufbau der Ukraine beginnt jetzt. Damit er gelingen kann, sind die spezifische Rahmenbedingungen des Landes zu beachten. Doch auch Erfahrungen anderer Wiederaufbauprozesse, etwa auf dem Westbalkan oder im Irak, geben wichtige Hinweise.
