International seminar on the future of development cooperation
Leuven, Belgium, 16 February 2012
HIVA initiated an exploratory research into the future of development cooperation (2020), using the technique of scenario planning. Co-faciliated by experts from Normann Partners, HIVA took a group of policy makers, practitioners and experts through a process of reflection and analysis about emerging trends, and what they could mean for global development. The outcomes of this process will now be presented and discussed in an international seminar through a mix of presentations, workshops and debate.
