Wilton Park is convened a virtual dialogue in partnership with Joep Lange Institute with support from Coalition for Global Prosperity, Development Initiatives, UNU International Institute for Global Health, Equal International, and the OECD Development Centre.
In the first iteration of the dialogue, Prof. Pascale Allotey, Director of UNU-IIGH, stated that “I have a vision for the future of aid … which is about identifying and building better models for balancing power between donor and recipient.” In this second conversation, she shared her views on the future of financial assistance for international development in global health.
This dialogue is part of the Wilton Park ‘Future of aid’ series to continue the discussions on the changing scope of public spending and investment for international development cooperation. The meeting offers an opportunity to examine how traditional aid approaches need to adapt to respond to the urgent need for financing the global response to COVID-19, and the post-COVID world. By looking into the COVID-19 crisis, lessons will be drawn on approaches that could serve to build new scenarios for the future of aid.
