Innovation for structural transformation in Least Developed Countries – LDC Future Forum

The world is far off track from achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the least developed countries (LDCs) are in danger of being left even further behind. With seven years left to 2030, we must urgently develop new ways to accelerate the needed transformations. Making better use of science, technology and innovations is key in this task. The second LDC Future Forum takes place 5–6 March 2024 in Helsinki, Finland. The event is live streamed.

Andrea Vaccaro on how (the lack of) state experience shapes today’s fragile states

Andrea Vaccaro presents at the WIDER Seminar Series on 20 March 2024. According to the prevailing paradigm in international development policy, well-functioning state institutions play a crucial role in facilitating effective international aid. Despite a significant increase in the number of fragile countries in recent years, there has been however limited progress in understanding how aid can be made more effective in these contexts. Our study argues that one of the main obstacles to this progress lies in the conceptualization and measurement of state fragility.

WIDER Seminar Series

The WIDER Seminar Series has returned! Beginning in March, join either online or in person for the 2024 season of this exciting event series to hear the latest research in development.
