Key Achievements

We succeed when we share our individual organisational resources for the benefit of all in the EU-CORD network and are together recognised as a significant contributor to humanitarian and development action, through advocacy, policy, and practice. Here are just a few recent ways we have made a difference.

Programme Resource & Collaboration

  • Workshop on accessing European Union development funds held in Utrecht, Netherlands and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (followed by a meeting with Ethiopian partners). Since inception, a total of 21 workshops attended by over 600 people.
  • As a member of the CONCORD EU Delegation Groups, EU, co-authored the publication EU Delegations Unwrapped, a guide to the EU Delegations targeting local civil society organisations.

Humanitarian Practice & Advocacy

  • Hosted a meeting of humanitarian practitioners from ActAlliance, Caritas, and EU-CORD to review outcomes from the ECHO Partners Conference.
  • Mapped EU-CORD member DG ECHO Framework Partnership Agreement (FPA) projects as a tool to encourage collaboration on upcoming ECHO applications.
  • Co-authored a piece for VOICE Out Loud No.19 European NGOs in emergencies: values and action

Advocacy Forum

  • EU-CORD reached an internal consensus on a migration framing which can be used to give input into future advocacy positions.
  • The Child Rights Group review of the UN Global Compact for Migration ensures that inclusive quality education is accessible to refugee and migrant children and included a recommendation that there is specific reference to children with disabilities—an addition which was added to the final text.

Disability Inclusion

  • In 2018 there was a push to encourage ECHO to be more visibly active in ensuring that its operations are disability inclusive.
  • Attended the Global Disability Summit and published EU-CORD commitments.
  • Working with International Disability and Development Consortium to develop a new strategic framework for the network and developed a position paper on disability inclusion in the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework.


  • Co-hosted a lab debate and stand on the theme “What’s religion got to do with it?” at the 2019 European Development Days
  • Increased strategic engagement in the work of CONCORD as Ruth was accepted as a member of the Policy and Direction Committee which is responsible on all CONCORDs policy work.
