Plenary Panel announced!
As we reach a crossroads in the practice of international development, we are thrilled to be hosting an expert plenary panel at the 20th International Development Conference on the very critical question of the goals and future of international development.
Our plenary speakers include Lant Pritchett (Professor, Practice of International Development, Harvard Kennedy School); Jane Wales (CEO, Global Philanthropy Forum and President and CEO, World Affairs Council); John McArthur (Senior Fellow, UN Foundation and Former CEO, Millennium Promise); and Michael Woolcock (Lead Social Development Specialist, World Bank).
They will be debating the path we have taken to where we are today, our working assumptions over the last twenty years, whether these are still relevant today, and what the future will hold. A panel not to be missed!
