WIDER Development Conference
The conference will showcase UNU-WIDER, its work, and the many people and institutions that are engaged with it. There will be panel discussions on all of the main themes and findings of UNU-WIDER’s research during 2009-18 — finance, food and climate change; and transformation, inclusion and sustainability. It will take stock of what we have learned, look to the future of development economics, and global development more broadly, serving as a bridge to fresh UNU-WIDER initiatives, aiming to mobilize evidence and action around the 2030 SDG agenda and its goals.Read more
