Beyond aid: Supporting Southern Countries to Raise their own Resources for Development”
November 13, 2013
On Wednesday, December 11, CCIC in collaboration with Inter Pares, Halifax Initiative and Canadians for Tax Fairness, are organizing a one day learning seminar at IDRC on “Beyond aid: Supporting Southern Countries to Raise their own Resources for Development”. This seminar will bring together Canadian and international resource persons to discuss the changing landscape of global development finance – two years out from when the Millennium Development Goals expire. What are the major trends in international aid relative to other sources of development finance? What is the role of NGOs, and aid, in supporting developing countries to mobilize their own resources? What is our role as development advocates in promoting alternative sources of finance, and in addressing domestic resource mobilization and the problem of illicit financial outflows?
International resource persons include Savior Mwambwa from the Tax Justice Network – Africa; and Jenny Ricks, Head of Campaigns with ActionAid UK.
The event will be in English.
