Glopolis is a non-partisan, non-governmental organization which focuses on the analysis of economic globalization, trade, development, agriculture and climate change.
Officially entitled “Making European trade work for the Millennium Development Goals”, the international triennial project has begun in February 2010. There are five organisations from five European countries involved in its implementation.
The project assesses the Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) in relation to EU trade policy and trade agreements in particular with regards to the role of Czech Republic. Its main goal is to analyze impact of trade and investment policies on development of poor countries and emerging markets. Following on that, the project elaborates on steps that both the EU and Czech Republic should undertake to employ policies contributing to reaching Millennium Development Goals.
