EPD contributes to advancing the policy debate in Europe from its head office in Brussels. EPD has been involved in this debate as a proactive partner, working in close cooperation with the EU institutions and Member States, as well as with other organisations involved in democracy assistance.
EPD aims to provide local partner organisations with support during the project management cycle based on the needs of those partners. This includes project design and implementation; fundraising; communication and visibility; training and capacity building; and monitoring, audit and evaluation.
As a knowledge hub representing over 140 people based in Europe and over 1000 in the field, EPD aims to facilitate an exchange of experience and lessons learned amongst practitioners from different sectors of the democracy support community so that they can find common solutions from an inclusive and holistic approach to democracy support.
