GDN Conference on Education for Development in Peru, 2016

GDN's most anticipated event is its Annual Global Development Conference held in different countries, each year, across the globe. Since its inception in 1999, GDN’s conferences have been held in every region of the world: Bonn, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, New Delhi, Dakar, St. Petersburg, Beijing, Brisbane, Kuwait City, Prague, Bogota, Budapest, Manila, Accra, Casablanca and Lima. Themes are aligned with the global sustainable development agenda. The conferences aim to gather the world’s most influential researchers, corporate leaders and political figures on a common platform where they can interact with each other and discuss the most pressing challenges in social and economic development. 

GDN's 19th global development conference, to be held on 23-25 October in Bonn, Germany, will ask how to strengthen the capacity of the current system of development research to meet new development challenges and facilitate sustainability. It will showcase high-level, truly inclusive, evidence-based debates on current development challenges and priorities. It will share knowledge for development by highlighting innovative, high-quality, original and topical research on development, and providing developing and transition countries with a voice in shaping global policy debates on sustainable development.
