Professional Practice Seminar
August 17, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
A year on from the UN Conference on Finance for Development in Addis Ababa, what does the future of development finance look like? Reforming the international financial architecture, including policies of international institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF, creating policy space for developing countries, and diversifying development funding have been key issues in this process. This seminar brings together perspectives from development finance experts to examine some of the challenges and opportunities. The main questions addressed by the panel include: What might a ‘new financial architecture’ look like for the development sector in the post-financial crisis period? What does ‘value for money’ mean for development agencies? Is the efficacy of finance as conditionality and regulation changing?
Speakers: Dr. Katia D’Hulster (Lead Financial Sector Specialist, World Bank), Prof. Stephen Peterson (Professor of Public Finance, Melbourne School of Government), Jonathan Gouy (Director – Development Economics, DFAT) and moderated by Kate Sutton (Director, Humanitarian Advisory Group)
