Date & time
EVENT WILL BE RESCHEDULED
Over the past decade, a community of practice committed to ‘Thinking and Working Politically’ (TWP) has emerged among practitioners and policymakers in government agencies, multilateral institutions, and think tanks focused on promoting development across Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. The Coalitions for Change (CfC), a partnership between the Australian Embassy and The Asia Foundation in the Philippines, is one program inspired by TWP.
Join us for the launch of Thinking and Working Politically in Development: Coalitions for Change in the Philippines, which explores the results from CfC initiatives in tax reform, education reform, land governance reform, electoral reform, infrastructure reform, disaster risk reduction and management, and conflict resolution.
Jaime Faustino and Sam Chittick of The Asia Foundation will discuss CfC’s innovative and effective methods for achieving the most significant and sustainable impact and the lessons for policymakers exploring new modalities for development programs.
