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 explored the difficulties faced by donor agencies and implementing partners working with state and non-state actors whose alliances are not straightforward. Our speakers ranged 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 sought to help participants understand how you identify friends in complex settings and mitigate against the risks of getting it wrong.

There was a light breakfast and networking from 9:15 - 10:00 AM sponsored by Creative Associates International
