SWIDN International Programmes Staff Working Group - Working lunch on 'Doing Development Differently' with Jon Shepherd, FRANK Water

Event Description

SWIDN International Programmes Staff Working Group - Working lunch (BYO) on 'Doing Development Differently' with Jon Shepherd, FRANK Water

A Working Group for employees of SWIDN Member organisations who directly manage an international development or humanitarian programme.

A chance to meet other international programmes staff, share your experiences and learn new skills for managing overseas development and humanitarian programmes.

For the first meeting of 2018, the working group co-ordinator, Jon Shepherd, Programme Manager at FRANK Water, will be hosting a discussion about how Harvard, ODI and Oxfam's Duncan Green, among others, are promoting "Doing Development Differently".

If attendees would find it useful, there will also be time for an informal group discussion around the safeguarding and other issues affecting international development/humanitarian programmes that have featured recently in the media. 

We've had around 15 people at the last couple of meetings and we are looking to grow the group further so please come along and also spread the word to any other international development workers you may know in the South West.

If you would like to speak at this, or a future meeting of this SWIDN Working Group, or would like to become a member, please contact: info@swidn.org.uk

Please note that this is a bring your own lunch (BYO) event.
