OPM consultants to speak at 2018 Australasian Aid Conference
Several Oxford Policy Management (OPM) consultants will be appearing at the Australasian Aid Conference, to be held on 12-14 February 2018. The conference will bring together researchers from across Australia, the Pacific, Asia and beyond who are working on aid and international development policy to share insights, promote collaboration, and help develop the research community.
Consultants from OPM will be speaking on the following panels:
Aid and governance (Panel 2b)
Tuesday 13 February, 3pm
‘Policy execution – from theory to practice’, Ben French (Oxford Policy Management)
‘Evaluating value for money in international development: the Pakistan sub-national governance program’, Julian King (Julian King & Associates Ltd) and Stephanie Allan (Oxford Policy Management)
Adaptive programming in theory and in practice (Panel 3a)
Wednesday 14 February, 8am
Chair: Alexandra Bridges (Oxford Policy Management)
This submitted panel will discuss the theory and practice of adaptive programming and how we can find ways to implement flexible programming within the context of an increasingly results-driven development agenda. Panellists will draw on their experiences to speak to the importance of an adaptive approach to programming, and the implications and challenges of this, from the perspective of bilateral and multilateral donors, implementers and consultants.
