Director's Breakfast Briefing

Development Policy in an Interdependent World

Chatham House, London

Participants

Nemat (Minouche) Shafik, Permanent Secretary, Department for International Development

Overview

The speaker will argue that development is a large part of the answer to the biggest global challenges of an increasingly interdependent world: poverty, conflict and climate change. But the development landscape is changing fast, with the rise of emerging powers and the G20, and a proliferation of new players (such as foundations, the private sector and civil society). To have impact, the speaker will discuss how those who care about development must work on a broader canvas and in new ways.

This event is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
