Responding to the Changing Global Development Context
How Can Canada Deliver?
Published: June 2017
In our latest report, Responding to the Changing Global Development Context: How Can Canada Deliver?, we highlight key messages in areas that resonate strongly with Canada’s new strategy.
- The landscape of development is changing, and so are the politics.
- Leaving no one behind and focusing on the poorest presents new challenges and a new normal for donors.
- Canada’s approach to risk and risk tolerance, and pragmatism about resources, time-frames and results are key factors that will determine the success of its feminist international assistance policy.
- There is consensus on the need to go from billions to trillions in development finance, but the question is how. New mechanisms, like Canada’s development finance institution (DFI), can play a key role if they get their mandate and governance right.
