UNGA Side Event: Accelerating Localization Through the Power of Networks

There is growing recognition of and support for locally-led development and systems strengthening — but questions remain about how to achieve these goals. As the global development community looks for promising pathways, we must consider mechanisms that already exist, such as networks, for accelerating peer-to-peer learning and locally-led, globally-informed development.

Join R4D, Teach for All and others to hear directly from local partners, network managers and funders about the power of networks to accelerate localization — and also their limits.
