Eurodad The European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad) is a specialist network analysing and advocating on official development finance policies. It has 58 member groups from 19 European countries. Its roles are to: • research complex development finance policy issues; • synthesise and exchange NGO and official information and intelligence; • facilitate meetings and processes which improve concerted advocacy action by NGOs across Europe and in the South. Eurodad works to push for policies that support pro-poor and democratically-defined sustainable development strategies. We support the empowerment of Southern people to chart their own path towards development and ending poverty. We seek appropriate development financing, a lasting and sustainable solution to the debt crisis and a stable international financial system conducive to development. www.eurodad.org
Zimbabwe Europe Network (ZEN) ZEN is a network of European trade unions and civil society organisations, including secular, faith-based and developmental organisations as well as diaspora groups, with programmes of support and/or presence on the ground in Zimbabwe. The network seeks to bring the demands, views and aspirations of Zimbabwean civil society into European policy formulation on Zimbabwe. This is done through input from a national reference group of civil society organisations in Zimbabwe which is regularly consulted and acts as a resource base to inform ZEN policies. ZEN emphasises that the resolution of the Zimbabwean crisis must be led by Zimbabweans themselves. www.zimbabweeurope.org Design: www.revangeldesigns.co.uk Printed by The Tawny Press
