More about lecture topic:

Millions of active citizens and the world leaders are discussing what should be the development priorities in the coming decades. A consensus emerges on the need to ensure greater environmental sustainability in development. It is not yet however clear how the world should achieve these goals and what should be the financing mechanisms. More often the questions are raised on to the role of traditional donors and the official development assistance in supporting development. What are the ways to finance sustainable development? Simon Zadek’s Kapuscinski Development Lecture will answer these and other questions.

Top global thinkers deliver their Kapuscinski Lectures on development in the initiative organised by the European Commission, the United Nations Development Programme and partner universities.
