Knowing Who Your Friends Are: How to Deliver Aid in a Complex Political Context

It’s not always that easy to determine friends from enemies. This event explores the difficulties faced by donor agencies and implementing partners working with state and non-state actors whose alliances are not straightforward. Our speakers range from experts on delivering aid in the midst of complex armed conflict to diplomats who have overseen multimillion dollar aid portfolios supporting traditional allies in peacetime. Together they will seek to help participants understand how you identify friends in complex settings and mitigate against the risks of getting it wrong.

See speakers below. Additional speakers TBD. 

Light breakfast and networking from 9:15 - 10:00 AM sponsored by Creative Associates International
