DACOR: The Changing role of International Development in Achieving Sustainable Outcomes at Scale
It's becoming ever clearer that yesterday's development assistance won't be tomorrow's. Dr. Larry Cooley will discuss the implications for official development assistance of recent work on taking development outcomes to scale, and sustaining those outcomes, in a world where domestic resource mobilization and private flows dwarf official development assistance and where host country institutions and talent are increasingly capable. Dr. Cooley founded MSI, now a part of Tetra Tech, in 1981, and served as its president until March 2015, when he transitioned to President Emeritus and Senior Advisor. He has also served as an advisor to cabinet officials in six federal agencies and in more than a dozen countries. He is President of the Society for International Development and directed the USAID-funded Implementing Policy Change program for 11 years. This event costs $5 and includes coffee & cookies.
