2016 Global Development Forum
Please save the date Thursday, May 19, 2016 12:30 pm - 6:30 pm for the second annual Global Development Forum (GDF) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The GDF will feature over 40 speakers, including key stakeholders from U.S. government agencies, leading multilateral and non-governmental organizations, foreign governments, and the private sector.
The 2016 GDF seeks to address the complex issues highlighted by the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals and examine the role and purpose of official development assistance against a backdrop of rising incomes, rapid urbanization, economic growth, youth unemployment, and other continued challenges in many parts of the world. In particular, discussions at the GDF will explore ways in which official donors and key partners, including the private sector, civil society, and multilateral institutions, can better improve livelihoods, strengthen governance and accountability, and facilitate access to key resources including food, energy, and infrastructure.
