Our First Partnership Brokers Training in Geneva with the World Economic Forum

Our trainers, Ros Tennyson and Julie Mundy worked with a diverse and interesting group of people during the flagship Partnership Brokers Association Training in Geneva in November 2017.  The World Economic Forum hosted us at their headquarters overlooking Lake Geneva. The challenges of high-level multi-stakeholder partnerships supporting the SDGs, the humanitarian sector, food security and climate change, and public-private partnerships were popular topics of discussion during the course.  Congratulations to our new graduates who are now part of the PBA worldwide alumni.

Counting what counts – Working with Donors launched

The Working with Donors project is a response to the need and opportunity for understanding better how donors (who are external to the partnership) participate in and contribute to partnering processes and what the potential is for changing the donor-partner relationship to be more effective and have greater impact.

Positioned as an enquiry, and based on the principles of emerging new knowledge through exploration and dialogue, we believe that this fills a real gap in the world of development partnerships. The role of donors is clearly changing as partnering becomes more sophisticated and its emphasis on inclusion and horizontal accountability more accepted as the norm.
