AGA [ID: 444]

Annual General Assembly 2019

Cracking the Donor Collaboration Code:

A deep dive into the context, needs and aspirations of donors in the rural development space


Zurich, 19-21 June 2019 | Hotel Boldern, Boldernstrasse 83, 8708 Männedorf, Switzerland

Hosted by
Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)

After many years of thematically focused Annual General Assemblies,this year's meeting will be a unique Members’ only retreat. It will foster a rich introspective about donor issues leveraging the unique role of the Platform and its members in the rural development space.

How do we work as individuals? How do we work as organisations?

These core questions will be explored in relation to a broad array of topics, including, but not limited to: reimagining the role of the public sector; managing cross-sectoral issues; and measuring impact. Discussions take place in a safe and trusted environment and allow for collaborative strategising around donor challenges.

On Wednesday, 19 June, space is reserved for Thematic Working Groups to meet, share updates and strategise. So far two Thematic Working Groups are going to meet: Climate Change and Rural Youth.

The AGA 2019 will close with a Board Meeting on Friday afternoon, 19 June.
