Opening Remarks and Panel 1: The Evolving Int'l Development Landscape (part 1)

The international development landscape is evolving in ways that impact how development is conceived and implemented around the world. This panel brings together representatives from development finance and knowledge producing institutions to discuss the how these changes are evolving both institutionally and on the ground. International institutions are evolving and restructuring their partnerships with developing countries, shifting their focus from the national to the municipal scale, even moving from traditional financing to innovative knowledge sharing and production, including the facilitation of South-South exchange. Yet some of the persistent development challenges remain, and their urgency is more immediate with rapid urbanization in much of the developing world, the ongoing deficits in basic services for the informal poor, the impacts of human-induced natural disasters, and more. How is knowledge shared between these international institutions and among developing countries, especially in an era when many middle-income countries are financing their own development and even translating their resources and knowledge to lower-income countries?
