This invitation-only and off-the-record Executive Session features unique opportunities for exchange and networking between C-level leaders of programs and IT at international and regional NGOs, private sector companies, government, and donor agencies. 

High-intensity huddles for leading-edge debate, discussion, and ideation will kick off with the question: “Could Trump administration policies, Brexit, and European anti-refugee populist movements be the needed wake-up call for the international development sector to reinvigorate itself? What role do digital technologies play in doing so?” With this as a catalyst for dialogue, key players in development will break down the ramifications for the sector in the new world order and the role digital technologies can play in sustaining organizations’ impact and in fostering collaboration to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

The hopes, fears, and aspirations of the international development sector will be exposed as this exclusive group addresses issues that include: Will the world’s political climate lead to opportunities for disruption of the international development sector? Could a reduction in government funding for NGOs force them to radically reform? What is the monitoring responsibility of NGOs to counter the emergence of “fake news” in humanitarian and conservation settings?
