Future of DFID Roundtable

Monday 24th July, 13:00-14:30

The development sector will change radically over the next 5-10 years. We have already witnessed the emergence of new donors, development actors and priorities shaping policy and practice. In the UK, the debate about the future of DFID and the focus of UK aid preoccupies many and offers opportunities to others. 


With this in mind, CDR is hosting a series of roundtables to explore the future of the development sector over the next 15 years.

The first of these roundtables will be hosted on Monday 24th July 13:00-14:30 at ICF with Mikaela Gavas, Head of the Development Strategy and Finance Programme at ODI who will to discuss the future of the development landscape and how donor agencies like DFID and others are equipped to respond.


Mikaela is a respected authority on government international cooperation strategy, and a leading specialist on European Union development cooperation. She spearheads ODI's work on the future of development agencies and developed their Donor Resilience Index, which measures how well donors are prepared to address future development challenges. Mikaela will be able to provide a view on how DFID might be changing and insights into how other development agencies are responding to the changing development sector. 


This event is open to CDR members. For attendance please contact the Executive Director, Jessica Toale
