About us

About D+C/E+Z


Humankind's collective future depends on sustainable development. We must eliminate poverty, but at the same time protect the natural environment. On this platform, we discuss what needs to happen at local and national levels, and what international cooperation must contribute to bringing it about.

D+C Development and Cooperation is thus a website that focuses on international-development affairs and explores how they relate to other fields of policy-making, such as security, peace, trade, business, public health and education. We invite people who work in different sectors and live all around the world to contribute. After editing manuscripts according to journalistic standards, we ask the authors to approve the final manuscript before publishing their items, ensuring that no mistakes or misunderstandings have crept in. We specialise in analytical essays and opinion journalism. Anyone who wishes to express views on our platform is welcome to send a proposal to the editorial team. We are particularly interested in contributions from developing countries and emerging markets because the dominant global media do not pay them the attention needed.

On Mondays, our Nowadays column offers insights into the daily life of different countries. We publish at least six new articles per week and take a break on SaturdaysOur contributors come from all over the world and work in different sectors.

The website shares the name D+C/E+Z with our print magazine, which is published every two months, and a monthly e-paper. All avatars are funded by Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and published on behalf of ENGAGEMENT GLOBAL. Our mission is not to serve as a governmental mouthpiece, but to provide a credible forum for debate, involving government agencies, civil society, the private sector and academia at an international level. D+C is the identical twin of E+Z Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit, the leading German language publication on development issues.

The views expressed by the authors are not necessarily those of ENGAGEMENT GLOBAL or the editorial team of D+C and E+Z.

Provided that they indicate the original source, third parties have the permission to republish in complete or abridged versions the manuscripts published by D+C Development and Cooperation and E+Z Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit. However, those who do so are requested to send the editorial office two hard copies and/or the links to the respective webpages. This general permission does not apply to illustrations, maps and other items with explicitly and separately marked copyright disclaimers.

The editors request that no unsolicited manuscripts be sent, but proposals for contributions are welcome.
