Locally led approaches, integrated development, policy coherence for development, and systems thinking are testament to a move towards holistic and sustainable ways of working. But what does this mean for the global development community?
Armed with a new set of targets and indicators following a momentous year of international agreements, donors, governments, development practitioners, civil society, and the private sector are beginning to reimagine how to work together to address myriad interrelated challenges and transition away from traditional ways of working, accessing new funding sources, and pivoting towards more connected and cross-cutting approaches to solving global problems.
Over 3 weeks, Devex and its partner Chemonics will explore how the development sector can work together to promote inclusive, local, and sustainable approaches to development. Drive the conversation forward by following #Global2Local and tagging @Devex.
How can we involve all community stakeholders to sufficiently respond to the multifaceted nature of people's lives? We’ll explore how engaging non-traditional actors has the potential to be a more effective model for addressing human development challenges.
While entrepreneurs and investors have focused on products and services for the unbanked, development practitioners are working to re-create ecosystems for people worldwide. We’ll explore new opportunities for full economic empowerment and financial inclusion, including how marginalized individuals can leverage rapid advances in technology, new financial literacy and new digital business models.
How can new approaches help scale up integrated models for development in the future? We’ll learn more from our community about what works and where there is still work to be done to innovate and leverage collective solutions.
