The CERDI is proud to have hosted the Global Development Conference 2022 from November 2 to 4. This conference has been jointly organized by the Global Development Network, the CERDI and the Ferdi, and it has focused on "Tax Policy for Sustainable Development". The conference has been held in hybrid mode, with around 250 participants in Clermont-Ferrand, and around twice as many participating online. The participants that came all the way to Clermont-Ferrand originate from more than one hundred different countries, with the vast majority of them coming from developing countries. This is the trademark of the Global Development Conference: promoting the exchanges with researchers and policymakers originating from developing countries, as better policies can be hardly conceived without their essential input.

This conference is the first major event of the Pôle Clermontois de Développement International (PCDI), or Clermont International Development Hub, which gathers that CERDI, the Ferdi and the GDN, with the latter that has just opened its European office in Clermont-Ferrand. The PCDI has received support from the French Development Agency (AFD), the French government, the town of Clermont-Ferrand, the department of Puy de Dôme and the region Auvergne Rhône Alpes.

The Global Development Conference will be held here every two years, while next year it will travel to a different country (not yet announced). Since its inception in 1999, the Global Development Conference has been held in all continents of the world: Bonn, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, New Delhi, Dakar, St. Petersburg, Beijing, Brisbane, Kuwait City, Prague, Bogota, Budapest, Manila, Accra, Casablanca and Lima.

We are grateful to all the panelists and participants to the conference for the lively debates and fruitful exchanges. We sincerely hope that this will be a seminal conference, that will lead to a large number of new joint research projects which will, in turn, be able to influence future public policies. As the GDN says, we need Local Research for Better Lives.
