DC event: Society for International Development, The Changing Face of Aid

When: Thursday, February 10, 2015, 8:30 – 10:30 AM

Where: Society for International Development Washington, 1101 15th St. NW, 3rd Floor, Washington, DC

Join us on Tuesday, February 10th for a lively discussion of how approaches to aid are changing and will continue to change in the future. Increasingly, the sources of donor-funded aid are diversifying. While funding once came from a few distinct sources, it is now coming from all over and often outside of the ‘official’ development sphere. This phenomenon requires a hard look at how we approach donor-funded aid now and in the future. Representatives from USAID, the private sector, an NGO and two foundations will discuss how donors’ priorities and strategies are shifting and how NGOs and private sector firms relying on aid are evolving as a result.
