Join Us for a Lunchtime Talk about Social Safeguarding and Development Careers with ARI PERDANA

  • 11:30am – 1pm – Presentation of the report, Q&A
  • 1-2pm – Q&A session for students interested in development careers

The session will discuss several key themes: independent evaluation processes from a prominent multilateral regional lender; social and environmental safeguard capacity building; and their application in the context of small Pacific States in the shadow of climate change. Based on a recent evaluation study that is now publicly released, the presentation seeks interactive feedback on future directions.
