Does the International Development Community Have the Right Workforce for the Future?
For decades, the United States has used a variety of soft power agencies, including the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to deploy people – both in Washington and overseas – to confront global development challenges. The needs and demands of emerging economies and developing countries look very different than they did during the Cold War, and they will continue to evolve.
In the future, developing countries will either be on their way to becoming upper middle-income economies or they will struggle with conflict and fragility, facing new and unforeseen challenges along the way. This requires us to rethink whether the international development community has the right workforce for the future.
Please join us at CSIS on June 13 to discuss this timely and important topic on the future of work in the international development community.
This event was made possible by general support to CSIS.
