North Rhine-Westphalia is the only federal state to have created a Ministry, which groups together the most important political fields of the future under one umbrella. The Ministry for Intergenerational Affairs, Family, Women and Integration of the Federal German State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MGFFI) works both on behalf of the interests of the older and also younger generations, on behalf of equality of opportunity and better integration and promotes corresponding projects and activities. The Ministry is also very active in the field of development cooperation and thus makes an important contribution towards European integration and towards the realisation of the United Nation's Millennium development goals.

Joint event organisers:

Just as during the 1st Bonn Conference on International Development Policy 2007 this year`s conference will be addressing the concept of a diversity of prospects. Whilst taking account of the views of a number of players in the field of development cooperation the discussion should lead to a result that is balanced and is in line with social reality. That is why the circle of joint organisers will once again be comprising representatives of civil society, the academic world and industry this year.
