WHAT: At this event, Tony Blair - patron of the Africa Governance Initiative (AGI) - will deliver a speech on leadership and international development. Drawing on his time as Prime Minister and more recently, the work of the Africa Governance Initiative, Tony Blair will give his reflections on the visionary African leaders who are tackling poverty by transforming government, and what the international community needs to do differently to support them.

ODI Director Alison Evans will lead a discussion with Tony Blair and a high level audience from the development community on the best way to support country ownership, effective leadership and ensure aid effectiveness. This event promises to be an important contribution to the forthcoming High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, Korea.
