Following on the first Doing Development Differently meeting, this follow-up event aims to put those implementing development programmes in the kinds of innovative and adaptive ways set out in the Doing Development Differently manifesto at center stage. The event will be hosted by the Asia Foundation in the Philippines, in collaboration with ODI and the Building State Capability Programme at Harvard, and with support from the World Bank's Governance Partnership Facility.
The workshop will run from Monday 27th April to Tuesday 28th April, and will be held at the Dusit Thani Manila hotel, Manila, The Philippines. This event is open to all those originally invited to the first Doing Development Differently event and to implementer and local organisations in the Philippines and in the wider region who feel they are part of this network.
The aim is for the majority of participants to be drawn from those with practical experience of "doing things differently," to ensure that the discussions remain practical and operationally focused. The workshop will provide an opportunity to look in more depth at particular programmes, in the Philippines and in the region. Interactive problem solving sessions will aim to support peer learning and strategizing, and there will be space to reflect on what is challenging for this agenda too. GDI will participate as a panel in sharing operational knowledge and know-how.
