What does ‘doing development differently’ really mean?

Written by Leni Wild, Helen Dempster

On 17 November 2016, ODI, in collaboration with the Building State Capability program at Harvard University, convened a private workshop bringing together a number of actors from academia, civil society, and donors, to look at how the adaptive development agenda has been put into practice throughout the world. In this video, workshop participants attempted to draw out some lessons learnt, and chart a way forward for both actors already working in this space, and for actors new to and interested in how to do development differently.
