Large-scale change requires collaboration. Economic development practitioners, irrespective of their sector or organization, are seeking to break from traditional mindsets concerning the roles and boundaries of their interventions. Sustainable change can be achieved by embracing approaches that focus on optimizing outcomes across sectors and throughout an entire system.
SEEP's 2103 Annual Conference will revolve around the importance of these partnerships and cross-sector approaches.
It will serve as a platform to promote learning and exchange around high-potential opportunities, exploring questions such as: How can the still latent power of partnerships with public, private and civil society stakeholders be harnessed for greater development impact? How can development practitioners collaborate more effectively across finance, enterprise and market development sectors to achieve greater and more sustainable results? How can we design delivery systems to improve outcomes in health, the environment, livelihoods, housing, and food security? How can better coordination and cross-organizational learning contribute to building more inclusive market systems and societies that benefit marginalized communities and households?
Every year SEEP offers a platform for attendees to connect, engage, and learn more about the challenges and opportunities they face in reducing poverty and strengthening the industry.
