Event description

Description

Over the next 15 years the nature and scale of the challenges we will face in development will change significantly. New donors, new actors and new approaches are emerging and having significant impact on the sector. This will have implications for bilateral and multilateral development agencies as they attempt to respond to the priorities set out in the UN Sustainable Development Goals as well as ensure that their domestic constituencies are supportive of their development assistance.

Over the summer a number of groups released reports outlining their views on the challenges faced by donor governments and development organization and proposed radical new approaches to addressing these challenges.

Join the Fabian International Policy Group as we explore these new challenges and how the Labour Party can respond. In particular:

  • What are the predominant development challenges to which we need to respond?
  • Is the UK's Aid Strategy fit for purpose?
  • How can the UK’s development approach be re-imagined and what would constitute a radical new and uniquely Labour development approach?

Speaker include:

  • Kate Osamor - Shadow Secretary of State for International Development
  • Mike Penrose - Executive Director, UNICEF UK
  • Aisha Dodwell - Policy and Campaigns Manager, Global Justice Now
  • Jessica Toale (chair) - Fabian International Policy Group & Executive Director, Centre for Development Results
